7. A Marked Opihi Colony


What I saw in the Opihi Colony was BEYOND BELIEF!

Opihis are small sort of volcano-cone shaped mollusks from Hawaii and they had been coming to our part of the sea in increasing numbers lately.

What I SAW was that practically EVERY opihi shell in the colony was marked with the same strange characters I had seen on the other mollusks!

I had literally NEVER seen anything REMOTELY like it in my entire life!
