Title?The Captured Cowry
This reviewer doesnít like the background color, hard to see (blue with black text, red links). Mostly deals with Hawaiian Cowries. Some pictures, in process of updating. There is an archive section of articles, research section, and a more collector orientated section. Frame enabled site, donít like. Site mostly devoted to Hawaiian Cowries, can be adapted to Cowries worldwide. Links to some clubs, scuba collecting, cleaning, etc. Many links to infomation, may be hard to use but if you like Cowries, a must see site.
Jacksonville Shell Club
An excellent site for Florida shells and shelling. Much information with many pictures. Fast loading pages makes it a pleasure to work with. Want to know about shells especially FL shells, VISIT! If go to FL, a must see site.
Man and Mollusc
Many, many links can be confusing for the casual surfer but if you have a particular goal in mind, a VERY useful site. In my review I found two non functioning links, can be a few more. Much information especially for kids and teachers. Worth a visit. I found the site map and search a nice feature. Site is in process of being fixed so not all features will work.
Ohio State University Division of Molluscs
A parent site to Digital Murex reviewed in the past. Not much information on marine shells but Ohio is land locked. Links to articles on the Conch-L page and other sites. Good information on non marine shells.
The Shell Store
This reviewer doesnít care for the blue background ( a different color on a different computer?). I donít care for frames either ( screen divided into sections, menu and information area, require scrolling, sometimes). Not too easy to see color combinations, white or red text/links on blue background. Is very good for items other than specimen shells, crafts, jewelry, home decoration, etc. Specimen shell list can be confusing. A good source for books and supplies.
Welcome to Chitons.com
Excellent identification site with much information on the animal and shell parts. A comprehensive glossary is included in site. Pictures might be slow in loading, but well worth the wait! If you like Chitons, VISIT!
A commercial site from the Philippines. Pictures are necessary before buying. Craft items and specimen shells available.
Brazosport Museum of Natural Science
A weird Texas museum site. Dark, hard to see pictures. Has links to different halls. Not only shell exhibits. Iím surprised to find a museum site that doesnít look good to me, maybe you will have better luck.
Guam Shell Site
A few pictures. Some info. I saw only one link. I think the site is updated.
University of Michigan, Museum of Zoology, Mollusk Division
Some marine mollusk links, fresh water mollusks, terrestrial mollusks, and non mollusk links. Information on species native to the Michigan area, with checklists of insects and other creatures, museum links, literature links, etc. Michigan is on a great lake so naturally it has non marine links.
