    Local names can be very confusing. As the same name can be used in different parts of the world for completely different fish or in this case snails.

    Anyway, from your other thread it seems to be part of the whelk family. Not predators but real scavengers. Although some can be predators, but then you are more likely to be in the cone / conus family.

    But, a picture does say a thousand words.

    Welcome welcome.

    Its nice to have ppl from other places also posting on masa.
    And it would be nice to see how you do marines compared to us.

    I must say, i like to see other ideas on marines. Any new idea gets stuck for a next DIY project.:thumbup:
