Chocolatey-brown zebra stripes adorn the nautilus's smooth white shell. The otter layer has been removed in a acid process exposing the white pearly layer. The nautilus expands its living space as it grows, adding internal chambers, spiral coated in mother of pearl. A newly hatched nautilus wears a shell divided into four small chambers. As a nautilus grows, it gains more living space by building new chambers connected to the old ones; adult shells have 30 chambers. To control its buoyancy, a nautilus pumps fluids in and out its shell chambers, which are connected by tubes called "siphuncles.” Nautilus populations tend to be 75% males and 25% females.
All bulk packaged shells may contain some shells with chipped edges, tiny holes and imperfections.
