Orange Spiny Oyster

Gift wrap available

In stock

Size: 3"+
Spondylus princeps possesses a striated shell. This means that lines of grooves run along the surface of the shell. Primarily, the shells are striped with fiery coral red and orange. From these shells, many imposing, curved quills grow, initially thought to be for protection. Recent evidence suggests that these spines aid the animal in camouflage. They provide anchor points for plants and animals, such as algae and sponges. A red band can be found lining the interior of its shell. They tend to be found between 15 - 50m deep in the ocean. These mollusks favor sandy areas, and may not be attached to any substrate material, such as rocks.
All shells and sealife vary in size and shape. You will receive a high quality specimen of the selected item but not the exact one pictured.  All sealife is guaranteed to be top quality; sourced from ethical vendors around the world.
