Conus textile
Picture by Don Barclay

In this picture “Paul Textile” is on the prowl for his next meal.  For those who have followed “Cone Wars” in the past; Note the shell growth since he became an aquarium resident over a year ago:  all the darker orange part of the shell, including the growth lines from periods when hunting wasn’t so great (and from when my aquarium light went out) and a repaired scar where I chipped his lip taking him out to clean the aquarium.
