15. Beware Of Cone Snail
The Cone Snail look so fine, but do not be decieved ny its beauty.
one snail species have shells that are shaped more or less like geometric cones. Many species have colorful patterning on the shell surface. Cone snails are almost all tropical in distribution.
Because all cone snails are venomous and capable of “stinging” humans, live ones should never be handled, as their venomous sting will occur without warning and can be fatal. The species most dangerous to humans are the larger cones, which prey on small bottom-dwelling fish; the smaller species mostly hunt and eat marine worms.
So just in case you are attracted to the fancy of any animal in shell be careful is just might be the cone snail
