Venus Comb Murex (Murex pecten)

  • White

    White nylon plastic polished to reveal a smooth matte finish.


One of my motivations in creating 3D printed models of real organisms was to be able to collect "specimens" without harming nature. This is one of my favorite shells, the Venus comb murex. It is believed that the spikes deter predators and prevent the snail from sinking into the ocean mud.
