This is another picture of the shell
That’s a paper nautilus shell. Good find. It’s rather uncommon.
What an amazing find. Don't you feel like you won the lottery? It looks really delicate. A miracle it didn't get broken on the way in.Edited to say I looked this up and it is so cool! What you have is the egg case of an octopus called an Argonaut. Read more about it here:Click to follow link...
Thank you for the link. I can’t wait to show it to my grandson. It does feel like winning the lottery!!!
That is pretty awesome. I’ve never seen or heard about those before. Cool find
That is awesome. I never heard of these,, so cool.
Wonderful!!! I've seen photos before but never have seen one "in the wild". Interestingly a friend just found one early this morning in the surf... He thought it was plastic at first!Very cool, Kathie!
I’ve seen pieces of the shell on the beach and always wondered what the whole one looked like. Beautiful shell!
Very nice! What are dimensions? Check out link below.
The measurements are 7” by 3.5”
