Nautilus

    Prev Next

    The chambered or pearly nautilus is a member of the cephalopod class of the mollusks. The nautilus is a "living fossil" whose close relatives date back 100's of millions of years into geologic history. The two living species of Nautilus live at great depths (~600 meters) within fore-reef habitats of the Indian and Pacific oceans. This one, sawed in half to show its chambers (used for regulating density), is from the waters of the Philippines.

      Excellent! It's so much more common to see the pearly outside of the shell, but the inside is fascinating.
