The Florida fighting conch is an interesting marine snail. The shell is thick and heavy and can be dark purple in color.
I found a living fighting conch one time up by Ponce Inlet and got some photos and videos.
The conch below is alive and the photo was taken on our boat deck. I put the snail there to get a photo, then he went back into the water.

This is a photo of another live conch and he came right out of his shell! Read more and see photos of this awesome sea snail here.
