Horned Helmet shell (Cassis cornuta)  also known as Helmet Shells, Giant Cassis Cornuta, Giant Helmet, Helmet Seashell, Helmet Shell, Giant Horned Helmet Conch, Horned Helmet, Hawaiian Helmet Shell and Bonnet Snails.

Found on sandy bottoms in lagoons buried in the sand during the day and coming out at night to feed on sea stars and sea urchins. Widespread Indo-Pacific

Cassidae can grow very large and their shells resemble Roman Helmets. These are sand dwellers mainly hunting sea urchins such as sand dollars, using chemicals to penetrate through the hard case via the anus or by drilling a hole.
