a squid in an ice-cream cone
A Giant Orthocone was a nautilus that resembled a squid in an ice-cream cone.Though they had bad eyesight, it did not matter as they lived deep, where most creatures could not see them coming. They had crushing tentacles at up to 6 feet long and ate anything it could, including sea scorpions. It was the top predator Orthocones were very slow to turn, so to survive, prey tried to stay at the shell end.
