Western Australia Sea Shells

Posted by Picasa

These are shells Hannah collected on the beach in Western Australia (Perth). There are several different kinds with the large cone type and the small abalone ones being the most prominent. I do not know the name of any of these, but they are definitely different from the Gulf of Mexico shells. However, these shells were only on the beach one day and after that, other types were more abundant. Reminds me of one Christmas years ago when my mother-in-law and I went to Gulf Shores and the whole beach near the state pier was littered with dime sized sand dollars. I defy you to find a whole sand dollar at Gulf Shores on any given day. It was serendipity.
