鸚鵡貝( オウムガイ )
Pearly Nautilus

W 160 x L 170 x H 120 (milimeter)


When I saw a living pearly nautilus for the first time, I couldn't move away from the showcase for a long time because of a feeling it would be very difficult to have another chance to see it. When they swim they suck water into the oral cavity and then spurt it out. That movement was very comical and pretty. However we can now find them in pet shops...
