The Giant Triton or Triton’s trumpet, Charonia tritonis (Mollusca - Gastropoda - Ranellidae), is one of the biggest snails in the reefs, growing up to 2 feet long.
Many people think its shell is one of the most gorgeous in the world. Though the Giant Triton looks harmless, it is a predator and uses its teeth (radula) to inject its prey with a poison found in its spit. The poison stuns, or paralyzes, its prey, which the triton then eats alive at leisure.
This species is found throughout the Indo-Pacific oceans, Red Sea included.
