Just when you think you have seen them all, you get this 81mm specimen from Zanzibar. The pattern is very strange; the spots are arranged in a circle. Just if a mysterious force has blown them around...

Makes you wonder if the animal was doing 360's inside the shell... just joking.

Great shell indeed

The interesting fact is that - if you are lucky enough - you can find interesting colours or patterns of common Cowries...
