I thought I would put together a mosaic to identify some of the shells we found on the Gulf Coast a couple of weeks ago. It’s really hard sometimes to be sure of an ID, especially when they are rare.
We found some ‘one of a kind’ shells....meaning we only found ONE of that particular type.
We found ONE Junonia...
ONE Banded Tulip....
One Orange Scallop...
and one small Lion’s Paw and a big part of a BIG Lion’s Paw.
I still have not identified this shell. It looks more purple in ‘real life’ and I called it a leaf shell when we found it. (the top)
We only found 3 or 4 of these.
It’s so interesting to learn about seashells and why you find different shells in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. We’re still learning and still discovering ‘new’ shells!
My favorites? ‘Nutmegs’
I’m joining Mary for Mosaic Monday
and Diane for Beautiful Sunday !
How many of these do you recognize?
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
