The Lions Paw Scallop shell is rich in vibrant orange hues and has no sharp claws I’m pleased to say.
Scallops or Pectinidae, are a very large family of several hundred species of mostly colourful and attractive shells.
They are free-swimming and move by flapping their valves together, butterfly-like. The shells can be smooth, ridged or scaly, but all have the characteristic and well-known fan shape.
Size: approx 13 x 15 cm across (5x6”)
