The State Shell of Florida

Congratuations to Matt C., from Genoa IL, who scored this beautiful Horse Conch on his family’s most recent visit to Ocean’s Reach!

The horse conch — a snail that is known as the second largest gastropod in the world as it can grow up to two feet in size — has been Florida’s official state shell since 1969.

Did you know that 14 of the 23 coastal states of the United States have an officially designated state shell?
