Abstract:

Some of the chemical characteristics of the venom and physical properties of the radular teeth of Conus spurius atlanticus (Clench) are described. A mechanism of venom propulsion is proposed, and evidence is presented which indicates that this species probably includes mollusks among the prey species.
