Conus omaria

Conus omaria is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[2]

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.

Description

The shell attains a length of 60 mm. The color of the shell varies from orange-brown to chocolate-color, covered by minute white spots, and overlaid by larger white triangular spots, sometimes forming bands at the shoulder, middle and base. [3]

Distribution

This species occurs in the Indian Ocean along Aldabra, Madagascar, the Mascarene Basin and Tanzania
