I just saw this today in Maui. Any idea what species it could be? Is it definitely a cowry or could it be a cone shell? Any chance of it being poisonous? Forgive my ignorance...I have no idea about these things. Thanks.

Your photo is of a juvenile Mauritia mauritiana (Linnaeus 1758). They are not poisonous.
