Welk Egg Cases

10 Jun

Eileen has found a few of these during her frequent walks on Siesta Beach. Welks are spiral-shaped, shelled mollusks found in this part of the world. Hard to believe that such a little creature can spew out such a strange egg case — filled with lots of little baby welk eggs. Some people hang garlic or chili peppers, we happen to hang welk egg cases on our back porch. Don’t worry, they don’t stink up the joint and they look pretty cool … kind of a cross between a Hawaiian lei and honeycomb. Life at the beach continues to be full of little surprises.   

Picture above is an Atlantic Welk — no relation to Lawrence.
