Brief Summary

Read full entry
Necklace shells are predator snails which prey on other molluscs. It is easy to recognize their victims. They grate a hole in the shell of the prey with their tongue. The hole on the one side is wider than on the other side. You hardly ever find living necklace shells on the beaches or dikes. Empty shells are strewn along all the beaches in the flood mark.
