"Females of this unusual octopus species sequester themselves in thin, translucent shells with which they drift across the open seas. Paper nautiluses, also called argonauts, secrete the shells to serve as cases for their eggs—but it has recently been discovered that they also function as air-trapping ballast tanks, which allow the cephalopods to hang effortlessly in the water column without sinking. Clever octopodes!"

An estimated one in million lobsters is blue. A genetic defect causes an excessive amount of a particular protein which combines with a red carotenoid molecule to form a blue complex known as crustacyanin, giving the lobster its blue color.

I feel your name, coursing through my veins

I love the shape of this shell and how the smooth spiral contrasts with the spikes around the edges. I also like the tiny detailing going around the spiral of the shell.
