Found along beaches from the southeastern United States to Brazil, this little shell is called a “Kitten’s Paw” or “Atlantic Kitten’s Paw”. It’s a bivalve – which means it has two sides attached like a hinge as compared to a univalve, shell made of one piece, such as the lightning whelk and olive shells. They are fairly common and honestly, I’m not sure if the one pictured on the lower right is a kitten’s paw, since it’s a bit different from the others.
Come travel to Florida and collect some seashells
I lived in central Florida for many years and here I share my favorite places to visit, and some pictures of seashells I have collected.
