Get On Pete's Waiting List


Olive Snails, also known as Olive Shells and Olives (Olividae), is a medium to large predatory sea snail with smooth, shiny, elongated oval-shaped shells. The shells often show various muted but attractive colors, and may be patterned also.

Olive Snails or Olive Shells are marine gastropod molluscs found worldwide, in subtropical and tropical seas and oceans. The Olive Snails or Olive Shells are all carnivorous sand-burrowers. They feed mostly on bivalves and carrion and are known as some of the fastest burrowers among snails. They secrete a mucus similar to that of the Muricidae, from which a purple dye can be made.
