Hi

Please could you help identify this.

We picked it up on the beach at Stilbaai, South Africa.

It is about 10cm by 14 cm.

Thanks
Robert

RE: help identify
This is Argonauta argo.  This is not a true shell, but actually an egg case or brood chamber of an octopus-like animal. It is often referred to as a "paper nautilus"  You can get more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argonaut_(animal)
