Tonna Tessellata Spotted Tun Shells
Sort by:
We carry wholesale Spotted Tun shells, Tonna dolium, also called tonna tessellata seashells from 1 inch up to 5 inches in size.  Spottted tun shells are from the family Tonnidae.  These shells are light weight and are great shells for hermit crabs.  Spotted tun shells are also used in making seashell ornaments, shell characters, candles and in shellcraft and shell art.  Tun shells are thinner and usually roomier than helmet shells.  They are almost exclusively tropical, prefer deeper water, and feed mainly on fish, seaurchins and crustaceans.  Their free-swimming larval life is lengthy and has helped some species to spread great distances.  

These are commercial grade seashells. All shells sold in bulk bags will have some shells with chipped edges, tiny holes and blemishes.
