Image Description: The world is full of natural beauty, but there is none so often loved, collected, and revered than the common seashell. Sporting intricate designs, winding spirals, and a mathematical symmetry that astounds even the brightest number-crunchers, seashells are actually the former exoskeleton of a seafaring invertebrate. By the time they are found washed up on a beach, ready to be collected, the animal who once called it home is likely long-dead, rotted away, or consumed by other animals, leaving only its non-nutritious shell behind for curious hands to find at a later date. This photograph gives us a look at 10 shells, each varying in size, shape, and color, giving us an idea as to just how vast the possibilities are when it comes to evolutionary action!
