Conus tessellatus Born, 1778

Conus tessellatus is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.

Like all species within the genus Conus, these snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.

Conus tessellatus is hunting small fishes and bristle worms.
