  Tibia fusus is a species of large sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Strombidae, the true conchs.
  The shell of Tibia fusus is spindle-shaped with a long siphonal canal. It is a fairly common species where it occurs, but because of its attractive appearance, it is highly sought after by shell collectors. Most Tibia fusus live in offshore waters where there is plenty of sand. A typical length for the shell (including its long siphonal canal) is 9".
  The Tibia Fusus are found from the Indian Ocean east to the northern Australian/New Zealand shores.
