Rose Murex

I found such a cool MUREX that I had to come home to look it up just to make sure which family is was from. It’s a ROSE MUREX, I believe. It’s pink and orange and in really good shape.

I found it a Blind Pass today where the shelling is still very nice right against the jetty. Clark and I have found this type of MUREX in Belize but I can’t remember finding one here……and definitely not this colorful. All of the other ones we have are dark brown, grey or whitish. I’m tickled since I looove those bright orange shells.
