This recent book by a friend of mine, Andrey Ryanskiy, showing live animal photos of seashells. It runs about 266 pages and is full of extraordinary photographs of extraordinary animals--and I would say that even if Jeanette and I had not contributed some of them! If you're interested in what the animals of seashells look like, this is a worthwhile acquisition. It is available in soft cover hardcopy from Amazon or ebook format from Reef ID Books.
