Scientific Name: Nerita peloronta

Bleeding Tooth (Nerita peloronta) Shells- part of the nerita family- small ball like shell with fabulous patterns of spotted brown, reds and natural golden colors. They get their name from the inner portion of the shell, where it appears a small tooth (red typically) is located. Approx size 1/2"-1"

All of our shells are real & unique. The majority of the shells we sell are intended for crafting purposes & are not specimens (unless otherwise specified); meaning that most will show evidence of their lives in the ocean. There may be natural variations such as but not limited to: growth marks, pinpoint holes, chipped points or edges, calcium build up, etc. WE DO NOT SELL “PERFECT” SHELLS- our shells are natural, beautiful, & imperfect.
