“Acteon Eloiseae”

“Acteon Eloiseae”

I have three of these shells – all taken from ‘Hermit crabs’ I even found the crabs another type of shell and encouraged them to move. Sad I know, but in the interest of conservation and because a number of irresponsible people have taken live shells; I was not about to do the same.

    1. Hi Marvin,
      The short answer is no…..
      They are almost impossible to find now; thanks to a rather thoughtless group of individuals who took live ones. I would like to think it was lack of knowledge but I rather expect it was the monetary gain !
      As far as I know, Masirah is the only place in the world that these have been seen.

      David.
