This large conch shell is called the queen, or pink, conch. Both names fit as it is a biggie and it’s a beautiful pink inside.

My Pink Conch
This large seashell is one I bought over thirty years ago while visiting Sanibel Island. I didn’t know any better at the time and I bought a large sea biscuit sand dollar as well. Shells for sale in shops have usually been acquired by killing the snail or living creature. I would never buy a shell these days.
My pink conch is now very faded, but once it was extraordinarily beautiful.
I’m all for collecting seashells, but not at the expense of the living creature inside. During my trips up and down the ICW (Indian River) near my house I have found some beautiful shells which could not be collected because they were inhabited. I take some photos and leave the creature to go about it’s life.
