Info

Conus vitulinus Hwass in Bruguière, 1792

The shell is large and rather thin. The spire is striate. The colour of the shell is yellowish or chestnut, with an irregular white central band, and occasionally another interrupted band at the shoulder. The spire is variegated with white and chestnut broad flames, the latter often overlaying also the lighter chestnut of the body whorl.

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

Diet: Polyachete worms mainly Family Eunicidae.
