I love the Nautilus shell and it's appeal seems to be universal. Most people don't ever see the creature that lives inside. It reminds me of a squid or Octopus, only with a hard shell outside. It has multiple arms and really is quite beautiful when swimming in the ocean. My parents never actually caught one while in the Phillipines, but my mother did buy one to add to their collection. Of the many shells in our collection this one is one of my favorites because of it's uniqueness and beauty.
