Clam Shell, Unknown Type
I found the large clam shell on the left on Captiva Island near the Mucky Duck Restaurant at the end of August. Nearby are coquina shells. I looked through a seashell guidebook called Florida's Seashells, A Beachcomber's Guide and was unable to identify it. I posted this picture on the I Love Shelling Facebook page and didn't get a response. Hmmm... if anyone knows what it is, please leave a comment.

Wow, you have a good eye, Rhonda!! You may be onto something! The interesting thing about the Pointed Clam Shell is that the lines are more vertical in the orange colored shell. In the "unknown" clam shell, the lines are horizontal and the ends are a bit rounded, but not too much. The unknown shell is really thick and sturdy, too. It's about 6 times the size of a small Pointed Clam Shell. Maybe it's in the same family.

I've been in love with having sand between my toes since I was a teenager taking the ferry across the bay to arrive at Presque Isle State Park (aka The Peninsula) in Erie, PA.
