Moon Snail

I can't help posting just one shot...of the awesome Moon Snail specimens I found this past weekend. Nicknamed "Shark's Eyes" you can see why they are part of my shell collection.

Doing a bit of research on them though, I come to find out that the perfect little holes I find in clam shells are the direct result of the Moon Snail's feeding mechanism. You learn new things everyday...thankfully!
