samarner Our touch tank is currently full of Fighting Conchs. This particular one right here was quite feisty this evening and allowed me to snap several pictures of it. Despite their name they are generally very calm creatures of the sea, often only fighting in defense. In these pictures you can see most of its anatomy. The operculum is the pointed structure, that is hanging down. This has a dual purpose, it is used for protection when it is tucked inside its shell and it also is used as a weapon during self defense. The eyes sit on the two lighter colored stalks and the snout sits below and works similarly to the nose of an anteater. (The second picture makes me laugh. He looks a bit cross-eyed and derpy faced.) #conservancyofsouthwestflorida #conservancyswf #fightingconchs #conchs #naples #florida #naplesflorida #touchtank #derpface #operculum 2w
