The friend I fossil hunt with knows I had a desire for a large scallop, so 2 weeks ago we went looking along the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Although the river level is controled by the corps of engineers and has much less fluctuation than the Peace River, it was a bit low...fortunately for us. These are some of my favorite finds. We spent about half a day in our kayaks checking out the banks, and digging here and there. Although I found several nice shells simply lying on the bottom sand. Besides these I found several nice pieces of turtle, several other shells to add to my collection and some nice coral. My friend found a nice lion's paw with top and bottom, entact...a first for us. We had gorgeous weather and plan to go again soon...nothing like the 4 degree weather my relatives are having in Wisconsin. I believe the murex is a gibbosus, unsure of the scallop
