Today we decided to go back to Ft. Myers to the grocery and planned on stopping back at the causeway to see what has come since we were there. The tides were going out and we walked a while in the shallows and managed to have a little bit of adventure along the way! I like it when we have to hit the books when we get home to identify animals and shells!
|And this one continued snacking while we snapped his pic!|
|I believe this is a Mossy Ark|
|There were bunches of hermits in Sharks eyes, this is obviously the favorite shell in this neck of the woods!|
|A syphon, we found out it was from an angel wing who had recently expired!!|
|I believe this is a Sea Hare|
|Underwater view of the Sea Hare, (cool pic Brad!!)|
Unfortunately our plans were interrupted by an ominous thunder storm that was quickly approaching. But we still did okay though Brad had big plans to dig in the tidal pool until at least dark!!
|Brad and Jess' shells for the day|
|The odd looking augers are called Boring turretsnails we believe, the one on the bottom we were never able to identify!|
|Olives, Sharks eye, Rose tellins, gaudy nautica, a beautiful little King's Crown, pear whelks and tulips|
|These unusual looking guys (from l to r) are called a spindle shell and Dove shells (I think)|
|tiny cones and murex|
|We also found pear whelks and a perfect little paper fig|
|Hubby found this Alphabet cone|
|More Boring Turretsnails and a worm....it seems they are related!|
|Marginella and/or Melampus|
Thanks for tagging along!!
