Linnaeus, 1758

Like all species within the genus Conus, these snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.

C. textile eats mainly snails.

The conotoxin of this species is extremely dangerous to humans !!!
