Disk Clam ( Dosinia discus) Shell Found at Canaveral National Seashore
We took a nice long walk the other day at Canaveral National Seashore. We walked half-in half-out of the water, just below where the Atlantic Ocean water ended on the beach and slightly above in the wet sand were a mess of washed up seashells. So I wondered what king of creatures lived in these. This is a Disk Clam (Dosinia discus), the name chosen because of the nearly round shape. The shell matches the sand quite well.
