Conchs are mollusks, marine snails, who build elaborate shells as a way to protect themselves from predators. Adult conchs can wander for miles on the sea floor rather than staying in one place. They use their feet to lift and throw their bodies forward rather than swimming and are also known to be good climbers. A home range for a queen conch can be as large as 15 acres.

Some people believe that if you listen through a conch shell you can hear the sound of the ocean but in reality the silence of listening through the shell allows you to hear the rushing of blood through the veins in your head.

Care Instructions

Clean shells with mild soap and use baby oil or mineral oil to give them a shiny coat and help them last longer.
