NAUTILUS NUMMIE

Bake an apple.  Great recipe HERE.  Basically, core an apple, stuff it with a mixture of raisins, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon with a pat of butter on top.  It took 45 min to bake mine.  Once it comes out, let it cool.  Stuff uncooked ramen noodles into the top of it and lay it on it’s side.

INTERESTING FACTS

1.  A Nautilus can have up to 90 grasping tentacles in which to catch their prey.

2.  Their shell can withstand pressure up to 2,600 ft.

3.  As the mollusk grows it seals off chambers in it’s shell with gas to help it stay buoyant or float.

4.  They only lay 1-2 eggs once a year, which take up to 12 months to hatch.  There slow reproduction process is cause for concern of becoming endangered or extinct. (As well as the harvesting of their shells.)

5.  They live for about 20 years.

{ Look at all those chambers. }
