I've completed edits on my novel, The Sea Sheller's Daugther and she's safely in the hands of my agent. Revisiting large sections of the story dropped me back into the world I created.
The centerpiece being, poisonous cone snails. These creatures continue to fascinate me.
This amazing video provides a safe look at these deadly snails in action.
There are roughly 500 different cone snails found throughout the world. Each makes a unique toxin. And while we should have a healthy respect for these animals, conotoxin could be the next pharmaceutical marvel. -- And a great story!
