GREEN TURBO - SEASHELL
Turbo setosus is a species of sea snail in the family Turbinidae found in the Indian Ocean off Madagascar, and in the Central and Southwest Pacific off Australia. Members of this species have solid, imperforate shells that vary in length between 22mm and 80mm, and in color between whitish-green and sea-green (hence its name), mottled with brown and olive. They have large, oval apertures that are generally white on the inner surfaces. Each turban snail has an operculum, a defensive anatomical feature attached to its foot. Once fully developed, this structure's outline matches the aperture, or opening, of the shell. Strong and thick (similar in composition to the shell), it serves as a trapdoor of sorts that seals off the aperture of the shell when the snail retracts its soft parts into it.
Polished and pristine (yet still modest), the Green Turbo shell makes lovely décor for any and every area of your home or office. Display it with other shells and/or ornaments of different sizes, colors, and textures from The Evolution Store’s wide array for an even more sophisticated, dynamic, and unique look!
