Shell Game

Sea Stars, commonly called Starfish, are found on various sea coasts.  There are many varieties.  This one is the most common.  Since they are so destructive to oysters, enormous quantities of them are destroyed by fishermen.

It was not too long ago that shells were literally the treasure of the sea.  Prehistoric men placed a high value on them and used them in bartering for goods.
