May 2020 Video presentation for the
Virtual Beachcombing Festival
Rocky Point 360 Interview
First and Second Home-owners
of a typical Sea Shell.
We filmed this little video on May 13, 2018.
It shows 2 seashells with Occupants.
The tiny moon snail is just a baby at maybe a 1/4" across.
(It is by far the tiniest living moon snail I have ever found.)
Its occupant is the original mollusc who actually is the animal who actually
builds the shell and grows with it.
This little guy is super cute and moves really fast once he gets going!
You will see it disappear into the sand as you watch.
The larger shell is inhabited by a second home-owner... the hermit crab.
This shell is probably about an 1 1/2" long.
