Large species of spider conch, popular feature for interior design and window dressing.
“Spiders” are part of the conch family which are salt water snails that vary in size from small to very large. Most species live on warm sandy bottoms in tropical waters in Indo-Pacific Oceans, and many are economically important as food sources. The animal inside the shell is eaten, either raw like oysters, steamed or stir fried. All parts of the conch meat are edible. However, most people only find the white meat appetising.
Conch Shells in History: In Mayan art large conches were used as paint and ink holders for scribes, as bugles and hand weapons.
The shell is SELECTED: The seashell is a carefully chosen piece with a photo that shows the actual specimen you will receive.
