Background : Murex is the name given to a group of medium to large sized carnivorous tropical sea snails. Many of the species are found in Indo-Pacific waters, however, this shell is unique due to its array of spines. The spines provide protection from predators, and prevent the snail from sinking into soft mud.

Murex in History: These shells were used as natural combs by the ancient Greeks.
