🌴SON SHINE FUN FIND🌴 "Do you polish your shells?" This is a question I'm often asked. The short answer is, No... They're naturally polished.

So why are some shells so shiny, particularly The Olive Shell?
Well contrary to popular belief, It's not the sand that does the polishing, it's actually because of the way the animal lives, the animal itself is the polishing agent.
When the mollusk extends from its shell to crawl or feed, its body (the mantle) slides up around the shell; Some mollusks cover their entire shell, others only a part of it.

The mantle that covers the shell is also the part that actually constructs it . As the mantle encases the shell, it adds tiny amounts of shelly substances smoothing and shining it keeping it free of growths and encrustations, and protecting it from chemicals in the water that will dull the shell.

Hope this little lesson helps. #gulfshores #alabama #saltlife #coastalliving #ocean #beach #beachlife #themoreyouknow #seaside #seashells #funfacts
