Talparia exusta

Talparia exusta, the smaller sister of the Mole Cowrie, lives in a restricted area of the Red Sea and is quite uncommon, expecially in gem quality and with remarkable size (specimens over 60 mm are now considered very large). Here an exusta of the old times, coming from Djibouti and measuring over 74 mm.

From now on, no more comments, only pictures of the species I love most.
