This strikingly beautiful shell is a Textile Cone, Conus textile. Like other cones, it hunts by firing a miniature harpoon into its prey from its specialized proboscis, the tube-like structure extending above the eyes. It then injects a powerful venom, so potent it can be fatal to humans. Richelieu Rock, Thailand, Andaman Sea
