Of course, never take them as long as they are alive.
|This marbled chambered nautilus|
is quite a find ...
Last summer I inadvertently stepped on the tip of one.
It cut into my toe pretty good.
But a year later I can't even find the scar.
I'm pretty sure it was my right big toe.
|But remember to never take a shell|
as long as they are alive!
Or maybe it was the left?
(Wherever it is, I wonder if that welk would know?)
