I went shell collecting and i found these guys alive!
The ocean in florida!
There were five or six of them!
Don't forget to update the spotting information. Thanks!
That's great che. I lived on Sanibel and Captiva Islands for just about ten years. Sanibel doesn't let you keep any live shells by law. However, there are plenty to collect on the beaches that have already passed on.
these species are to endangered to keep so i set them free
they are called fighting conchs because they are very territorial and will defend their territory
It almost looks like it is glazed! I wonder why they are "fighter conchs"
