We haven’t had much luck with the larger shells at the Sanibel lighthouse beach lately so ….we walk for wentles. Last evening, Clark found this brown wentletrap. I looked it up on the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum website to properly name it …… looks to me like a BROWN-BAND WENTLETRAP. Nice, huh?
We ran into a family that were happy as clams to be finding the minis too. Jennifer from Atlanta has taught her whole family the names of all of the shells and how to enjoy the small treasures.
Coming tomorrow! …… the announcement of who won the Sanibel Lighthouse Giveaway !
What a great find! We love looking for wentletraps and the minis too.
I have never found a wentle. I would love to. So great!
wow i have never found a brown wentletrap. i cant wait to see who won the giveaway!!! thanks for posting that pic for us!!
That is a beautiful wentletrap!!! Never seen with that coloration!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it. Dovie
As always when I read your e-mails I get homesick for Sanibel. Staying in touch with other shellers takes me there in my thoughts. I will be back but probably not until February.
Don’t think I’ve seen one of these. Beautiful! Happy Wentletrapping!
