Jane found this NAUTILUS shell while walking on the beach…… in Thailand! I’ve talked about my friend Jane in other posts (Jane’s Seashell Frames) so you know she loves to collect seashells….. but now I’m jealous. Why? A. She went to Thailand and Bali with her husband for her birthday. B. They found this nautilus on the beach. C. They found all of these other amazing shells in Bali!
I am not an expert on Bali shells so I don’t know what type of CONES these are. So if you have info, please don’t hesitate to share. And so many different types of OLIVES…
Jane brought over this whole big basket of shells so I got sort through them and figure out which ones to photograph. It was so much fun to ooh and ahhh over each one of them.
I had to show the side view of this SCALLOP. Isn’t that so cool? I had take this one alone too. So beautiful!
You can see from this picture that the nautilus isn’t huge but it’s about 2 and a half inches.
Jane sent me this next photo from her iPhone when they found it on the beach. Isn’t it crazy I could get this picture while they were on the other side of the planet?! I, of course, thought they were pulling my leg.
Maybe one day we’ll get to Bali and do some shelling. Until then we all can enjoy and dream of walking the beaches to happen upon a nautilus shell like this. Thank you Jane for sharing your Thailand and Bali beach treasures!
PS- Another Nautilus was found this month on the beach in Far North Queensland Australia by blogger friend Elizabeth at i Heart Sunny Days. She took a picture too.
