Conus gubernator

Conus gubernator Hwass in Bruguière, J.G., 1792

Conus gubernator is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[1]

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.
