Philippine Melon Seashells
5" - 6"
Philippine melon seashells are tan and brown bailer shells with a small crown at the spire. They're called bailers because of their capacity to hold water.
The foot of this mollusk is very large, round, thick, fleshy, and it can envelop part of the shell. The tentacles, which have the eyes at their base are short and squat.
They live on sandy or muddy bottoms in tropical waters of Indo-Pacific Province.
