Très jolie collection de coquillage, dommage qu'ils ne soient pas dans leurs milieux naturel.
Hi Mehmet. Your picture is fantastic! I work for the BBC and am making a documentary about the Phonecians. They used to extract purple dye from the murex shells which is how they got their names - Phonecians comes from the Greek for people of royal purple dye. Your photo is a wonderful clear image! If you would allow us to use it, I'd be grateful if you could email me at [email protected] so I can send you a release form! Kind regards Jon
I am new here, actually found this site while search for information on Strombus listeri. Congratulations on the excellent photograph of a great specimen of one of the most elegant strombs. I appreciate your photography as well as the nice description and information provided. I would, however, just offer a correction regarding the depth: while most strombs are found from the intertidal to shallow subtidal depths, this species is considered the deepest living in the family Strombidae. It has been collected alive from depths of about 50 to 120 m.
Keep up with the good work!
Old...I wonder if it was used by ancient ones as a tool..Certainly has a weapon like appearance....I remember the old Disney movie of 30 years ago..20 thousand leagues..in which they wear helmets made of shells..Dreaming on the reality..it takes a man of fantasy..which I am...I see deeper into the science than most..
