Otter Shells (15)

Otter Shells (15) – Common Otter Shells (Lutraria lutraria) washed up with other shells like Pod Razor Shells, Common Whelks, and Pharus legumen, in a shell drift on sandy Rhossili Beach. Some Otter Shells still have remnants of the brown papery periostracum covering. The shells are frequently stained blue-black from deep burial in the offshore sediments. P1270804aBlog15
