Husbandry

Murex tribulus Linnaeus, 1758

Murex tribulus, also known as the Caltrop murex, is a species of large predatory sea snail and native to Indo-Pacific waters.

The shell has over one hundred spines, which provide protection from predation, and prevent the snail from sinking in the soft mud. Like many other murex snails, it feeds on other mollusks.
