Dosinia Anus

Dosinia anus (ringed venus shell)
Lolling on the beach
Just getting my foot wet
And what did you do today?

This is a shellfish with Venus shell, up to 3½ in. thick, flattened, disc-shaped, and sculptured with sharp concentric ridges. It lives buried in sand at and below low tide on open sandy beaches.
