Neverita duplicata, 23 May 2014

Neverita duplicata, the Shark eye sea snail;
Volusia county, Florida (23 May 2014).

Yeah, I have a favorite sea snail. It’s undoubtedly this one, the Shark eye sea snail. It’s an awesome mollusk with an awesome paint job and an awesome common name. Hell, even the latin name is awesome. Say it aloud and you’ll hear what I mean: “Neverita duplicata.” That’s not a name; that’s a spell!
