Paper Nautilus found on Ormond Beach January 25, 2013

This photo sent to me by Patricia Whitfield who found this nautilus on Ormond Beach on January 25, 2013.

Patricia Whitfield was vacationing in Florida from Canada when she found this beautiful paper nautilus shell on Ormond Beach. What a lucky find! I’m wondering how many more people are finding these?

Here is a photo of the Argonaut octopus Patricia found near one of the shells. This is the octopus that creates the shell.
