Giant Syrinx Aruanus Shell
A huge, gorgeous display shell - the Giant Syrinx Aruanus sea shell. This is one of the most magnificent giant sea shells that the ocean has to offer!
This giant sea shell is from the marine gastropod mollusk in the family Turbinellidae, and is the only species in the genus Syrinx.
This is the largest living snail (shelled gastropod) species in the world, and arguably the largest (heaviest) gastropod in the world. Although the shell itself is quite well known to shell collectors because of its extraordinary size, there is limited knowledge about the ecology and behavior of the species.
Size: Giant 21"L X 10" W X 7" H, Weight: 9 lbs. This is the exact one for sale.
Great color, minimal nicks. Outrageously large and beautiful! Ruler no included.
