In 1965, North Carolina named the Scotch bonnet (Phalium granulaturm) as its official state shell. It was also the first state to designate an official state shell. At least 13 other states subsequently designated state shells.
A Scotch bonnet is a gastropod mollusk that can be found from North Carolina to Brazil in coastal water depths of 50-150 feet. This fragile shell has short spires, large body whorls and thickened outer lips.
