NAUTICA SHELLS ARE UNIQUE PREDATOR MOON SHELL

Moon Shells

These shells are found worldwide, most in the tropics but a few have been found in the Arctic. They have a one half moon aperture (the opening at the front end of gastropod shells). The shell is hard and spherical shaped.


They are carnivorous, spending most of their lives digging thru sand, searching for clams and smaller snails. This family of shells drills a hole in its prey and devours the molluscan inhabitant alive. The shell's foot is large and covers much of the shell



There are more than 100 species belonging to the snail family of shells. Genus: Naticarius.
