Husbandry

Conus auricomus Hwass in Bruguière, 1792

Conus auricomus 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 auricomus: On the shell, there are two irregular spiral bands of smaller-sized light triangular markings. C. bandanus is nearly always on a hard rocky substrate and on lagoon pinnacles and the seaward reef.
