Color dozens of shells from around the world — from Australia's poisonous textile cone to Florida's flamingo tongue. Mollusks build colorful shells around themselves for camouflage and defense. Shells also attract humans for their beauty and value. This ready-to-color collection offers nearly a hundred of these hard-shelled wonders from around the world.
Shown in native habitats that include oceans, reefs and beaches, you'll discover spider conches and jackknife clams from the Indo-Pacific, Atlantic Bay scallops from New England, fig shells and white-edged augers from Australia, tropical giant clams from Japan, and many other mollusks. Captions include common and scientific names.
