RE: Today in the Yard

The egg cases are very interesting as is the whelk itself.  I wondered what
was on the penny (saw the photo when I went to look at the gator.)  Now I
know!!!  So tiny!

Thanks, Jim.  I always learn so much from this group!

Hi, Ceres. I just realized that I had not responded to your question. 
I'm going to send Donna a picture of an adult lightning whelk shell, a 
string of the egg cases they lay, and--on top of a penny--two baby 
whelk shells that came from one of the cases in the string. The adult 
shell is about 6 inches in diameter.
