Argonauta Argo

The Great Argonaut or Paper Nautilus - an octopus that creates and travels with a large shell for its eggs. This specimen was found stranded but alive on the beach of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida the afternoon of Dec 5 2008. It was about 8 inches across. After taking this picture, the creature was returned to the surf and seen to swim away.
