Strombus gigas Linnaeus, 1758, now known as Eustrombus gigas, is a species of very large edible sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Strombidae, the true conchs. This species is not yet endangered, but it is threatened in many areas by extreme overfishing.

S. gigas is a true conch, and it is one of the largest mollusks native to the tropical zone of the Western Atlantic Ocean, from Bermuda to Brazil.

Common names for S. gigas include: the queen conch, pink conch, caracol reina, caracol rosa, caracol rosado, caracol de pala, cobo, botuto, guarura, and lambí.
