Conus suratensis, common name the Surat cone, is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies. The size of the shell varies between 40mm and 161mm. The color of the shell is yellow, ivory, or orange-brown, with a revolving series of numerous spots, and short lines of chocolate upon narrow white bands. The more rugose growth lines cause them to be rather regularly interrupted so that they form longitudinal as well as revolving series. The spire is radiated with chocolate. The base of the shell is strongly grooved.
Fun fact, just 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.
These are specimen shells, they are large and heavy. Each shell is different and they vary from 3-1/2 to 4 inches long, 2-1/2 wide in diameter and the weight will be around 10 ounces.
