Happy 500 Millionth Birthday!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The chambered nautilus has been around for 500 million years! As we read in our TFK magazine today, we learned that the sale of chambered nautilus shells are very high. Scientists are wondering if the nautilus is in trouble.

We also read that kids can help! One way to help is to educate others. Some students put together a website to do just that! Check it out!

Would you like to learn more about the nautilus? Here's a video of one. Here are some more mullusk video links:

Giant Clam

We wish we could show you video of a giant squid, but here's the best we can do.


In your comments, share your questions and new learning about these incredible mollusks!
