October: Cowry Shells mating and laying eggs

In October in Okinawa, we see many Cowry Shells mating and laying eggs.

It’s quite interesting to observe Cowry Shells itself, but even finding their eggs like the picture below on the right is fun.
In the each eggs which are about Cod Roe size, there are hundreds of tiny micro eggs in them.

We are finding them in Kerama Islands and Okinawa West Coast lately.
