T. fragilis is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk, in the Strombidae family (the true conchs).
This species is distributed in the western and central part of the Pacific Ocean and along the Philippines.
Spotted this conch on a night dive at Dayang Beach, Talikud Island. When I turned it over to get a photo of its aperture, it righted itself up by pushing with its muscular foot, and then jumped away!
