Shells from Gulf Shores September 2010

The heart shaped piece of shell is a hunk of a large sand dollar. There were many pieces of large sand dollars on the beach, but I only found one small one (quarter sized) that was whole. I also found several pieces of  Scotch bonnets, but none that were anywhere near whole. Oh how I wish I could find a whole Scotch bonnet at Gulf Shores!! But I have only ever seen very broken pieces. Beyond these two kinds, there was the usual abundance of scallops, calicos,clams, a few oysters, and many cockles. In fact, I found the largest cockle I have ever found anywhere.
