This incredible digital print plush nautilus is a perfect collectible for the prehistoric fossil enthusiast! This plush animal includes an educational hang-tag teaching kids about nautili! The nautilus is the sole living family of the superfamily nautilaceae, comprising of six living species. They are characterized by smooth, hard shells and compressed whorl sections. These living fossils have survived relatively unchanged for hundreds of millions of years. Nautili are only found in the ind-pacific and inhabit the deep slopes of coral reefs. Most species never exceed 8 inches in diameter. To swim, the nautilus draws water into and out of its siphon, using jet propulsion.
