Australian Trumpet Shell (Syrinx aruanus).
Syrinx aruanus, common name the Australian trumpet or false trumpet, is a species of extremely large sea snail measuring up to 91 cm long and weighing up to 18 kg. It is a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Turbinellidae, and is the only species in the genus Syrinx.
This is the largest extant snail (shelled gastropod) species in the world, and arguably the largest (heaviest) gastropod in the world.
With it suttle peach-orange colour, this large specimen would make a stunning addition to any display or collection.
It occurs in the warm waters off the tip of Northern Australia and has typically been used in the past by natives for ceremonial and domestic purposes.
All of our shells come from carefuly regulated and approved sources. All question welcome.
