A knobbed whelk seashell (Busycon carica) lays on Folly Beach, Oct. 12, 2015, in Folly Beach, South Carolina. Whelks are believed to have lived on the South Carolina coast for more than 30 million years. The knobbed whelk, one of the most frequently found whelks, is the state shell of Georgia and New Jersey. Whelks are carnivorous gastropods that feed on clams and other bivalves. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
