It is most likely caused by lobster, crab or fish. I have seen a lobster chew up a Conus in St. Vincent until it was totally destroyed.

An underwater explosion would not cause something like that, unless they use nuclear bombs...

Dinamite kills fish due to shock waves, but not strong enough to break hard material otherwise fisherman would get pieces instead of whole fishes.

Dear listers,

does anybody know how deep dynamite fishing is done? I got some heavily crushed Conus, but repaired by the animal, from the Philippines and wonder what could happen to them in 100 m deep water. Best regards Bernd Sahlmann
