|Northern Moonsnail (Lunatia heros)
Watercolor and colored pencil
The moon snail, common around Cape Cod, is a member of the phylum Mollusca which also includes the squid and octopus. Unlike those shell-less creatures, the moon snail is a 'Gastropod': it lives inside a single spiral shell and extends its large foot out of its body. Moon snails make their mark with the small neat holes that are formed when they drill into the shells of their prey. You may also notice their collar shaped egg masses which are deposited in the sand and can be seen at low tide.
