Description & Application:
A massive shell over twelve inches long - it must have made for a banquet weekend for some family! Excellent shell for planting as a feature in a conservatory or direct into a garden border. This selected melon shell comes from a traceable source and provides an excellent base for crafts and interior/exterior design.

Melon shells thrive in relatively shallow waters and prefer to inhabit muddy bottoms often around mangrove swamps. Their worldwide distribution is quite limited, however, the shells are collected as a food source by subsistence fishing communities from Burma to the Philippines.

The shells can often be seen in rural markets used to measure out rusks and grain, whilst off-shore, the shells are referred to as bailers, due to their capacity to store water and their use to bail out boats.
