Nautilus float

People like to say things like ‘nautiluses are prehistoric creatures’, implying that they’re less evolved than octopuses and squid (their nearest kin), but all living creatures have evolved exactly the same amount- ‘more’ and ‘less’ evolved aren’t terms we use in science. It would be more accurate to say that the nautilus hasn’t changed a lot since their ancestors were fossilized and octopuses and squid changed a lot in that time. They are super weird, cool creatures- they swim backwards, for example.

This amazing work of beauty will soon be available at Southern Makers’ and Artists’ collective in Montgomery, or email me if you’re interested.
