Conus pertusus

Conus pertusus 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 size of an adult shell varies between 20 mm and 69 mm. The spire is convex, rather obtuse. The body whorl is encircled by distant punctate striae. The color of the shell is rosy tinged with yellow and interruptedly banded with white blotches below the shoulder and in the middle of the body-whorl.[3]

Distribution

This species occurs in the Indian Ocean along Chagos, the Mascarene Basin and Mauritius; in the entire Indo-Pacific
