Husbandry

Conus arenatus Hwass in Bruguière, 1792

Conus arenatus belongs to the family Conidae.They live in warm and tropical shallow water.

Cone snails are carnivorous diet, prey on mollusks, worms and fish, they kill by poison. The poison that produce some types can be painful for people or even fatal. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.

Conus arenatus feeds on Polychaeta worms (Bristle worms).

Its shell is similar in color to Conus pulicarius and C. eburneus, but it is usually smaller and the black dots are finer and more clustered.
