R16 Gibbula Magus Seashell
Issue Date: September 20, 2010
On September 20, 2010, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued two new stamps featuring colorful seashells. The Pilgrim's Scallop is a bivalve, meaning that
its soft parts are enclosed within two hinged shells. It has a series of prominent, highly-developed eyes with which it can detect light and dark, as well as motion. Like many other scallops, it
is also mobile. By opening and closing its valves, it ejects water, which causes it to move forward. When endangered, it escapes by its thrusting manner of swimming. The Gibbula magus feeds on
algae and is found in the Mediterranean below depths of 10 meters. Its range of distribution reaches as far as the Shetland Islands. It is quite abundant: great quantities are often washed up on
beaches. The Gibbula magus is a favorite collector's item because of its frequently brilliant coloration and interesting shape.
