Spiral Poetry


This new sea creature is one you might guess fairly quickly. But look at this and wonder what part of the animal this belongs to. Hold it up to the sun to see how beautifully it spirals.

The sea creature this belongs to has a sharp radula. I know some of the animals it eats, but I don't know much about the food chains leading to its mouth. Maybe you can teach me once you learn who this is...

And I wonder if you could write a poem about this sea creature.

Dear Anonymous,
Is a mollusk a cephalopod? I think it might be a mollusk?

Did you hold the creature up to the light? Isn't it beautiful?

When I first hold these to the light I think of cephalapods. It isn't one. Cephalapods are mollusks to be sure, but this is a part of another kind of mollusk.

I have a small paper nautilus on my desk. Its spirals look like this. Spirals in the sea create this mystery.

Yes Porscha, it is a kind of snail and no Terry it doesn't eat shrimp or algae. It mainly preys, very actively, on clams.
