Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occasionally used as food. Must be carefully handled, as it can inflict painful bites with its poisonous, arrow-like teeth (Ref. 349). Also found in subtidal areas where it feeds on gastropods (Ref. 3204). Members of the order Neogastropoda are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
