TITLE RARE PAPER NAUTILUS SHELL
DESCRIPTION A paper nautilus is fragile and delicate and highly prized. The paper thin white calcareous "shell" is the egg case made by a female octopus. It has nothing to do with nautilus sea shells except a sharing of the name and a sympathetic shape. Argonauta nodosa are open ocean cephalopods about which little is known. Some occur around Australia.
