Have you ever found a conch shell with the creature still living inside it? Have you wondered what the creature looked like?
Scott and I visited the Don Cesar Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach. While playing in the ocean, I stumbled across a shell that I dug out of the sand with my toes. Imagine my surprise at finding such a grand prize!
The tiny claw flicked its way around the shell, attempting to get away. Soon after the soft, brown muscular foot made its way out of the shell almost leaving the conch exposed and shell-less. Finally out popped two eyeballs balanced on thin tentacles. He was ready to be photographed. I made several photographs of the ocean treasure before releasing it back into the ocean.
This is the Don CeSar Beach Resort. Otherwise know as the big pink resort on St. Pete Beach.
