Does anyone have a picture of a living syrinx aruanus?

It’s apparently the largest snail in the world, with a shell that can exceed 3 feet. it’s definitely not extinct since people do eat it as food… that said, for some reason i can only find images of its shell online and not of the living snail. Most of what i see when i try to find it is images of triton’s trumpet or gonna galea.

i’m just really curious as to how it looks, honestly. Any help would be very appreciated!

Is this the same species? https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&taxon_id=1408749

Just checked, this is the same species, just using a different scientific name.
