True conch species are salt water gastropods which vary in size from small to very large. Most species live on warm sandy bottoms in tropical waters in Indo-Pacific Oceans, and many are economically important as food sources.
In Mayan art large conch shells were used as paint and ink holders for scribes, as bugles and hand weapons.
