Melo Diadema


Melo Diadema is a species of Melo genus of extremely large sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the family Volutidae, the volutes. Because of their huge ovate shells, these snails are often known as "bailers" (the shells were sometimes used for bailing out canoes) or "melons" (because the shell resembles that fruit).

Species in this genus sometimes produce large pearls.

The size of this shell is approximately 150mm (Small), 200mm (Large) length.
