Husbandry

Conus episcopatus da Motta, 1982

Like all species within the genus Conus, Conus episcopatus is predatory and venomous.

Conus episcopatus is a moderately uncommon species found in a variety of lagoon and seaward reef habitats. It usually lives buried in sand or rubble underneath rocks during the day and emerges at night to hunt gastropod mollusks.

It can be distinguished from the similar and generally more common species Conus omaria by its narrower, more cone-like shape and more erect spire with a rounded top.
