Conch and octopus

This is the conch shell that had the octopus on it. The octopus
was about 4 feet across and the body was 2 feet across.
When we were going conch hunting with friends I (Conrad) saw a conch with a big octopus trying to suck the conch out from its shell. We got the octopus off but we weren't sure it hadn't eaten the conch. The octopus was very angry and turned white. But after we got the shell, I looked deep inside and saw that the conch was still in there.

I also saw a little conch fish come out of a conch shell.

I'm Mark. I held a conch. It's called a queen helmet conch. We threw it back because we don't think you can eat them. Bye bye!

Here is some art that Mark and Conrad made for Mom's birthday.

  1. Hi Mark,
    I never saw a conch like you were holding. You are finding such great things.
    and Conrad you are a great spotter....first those huge lobsters and now that great big octupus. Keep up the good work.
