Item# 0001956097
NamePatella mexicana - AWESOME CLEANED WOW!!
Size168x122 mm
LocalityPunta Paraman, Jal,. Mexico.
NoteWOW WOW!! LARGE SIZE Patella mexicana!!! 168x122 approximately. Seldom seen with this incredible and giant size. Hard to clean, it took me hours for this result, cleaned ultrasonic. VERY RARE NOWADAYS AND AT THIS SIZE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET!! Very interesting specimen. Difficult and dangerous to get them off. Took me about 2 years until i found a place where they live and how to take them off from stones ( between big waves). The fisherman would collect them for food and broke the shell to get the meat. They look for Oysters or Percebes and some times one P. mexicana is there, so they had to wait for the best day (calm day), otherwise its always wavy with a lot of currents and danger. And of course you need to go far from the coastline until you will find a good place for P. mexicana. Whit 168mm this is a very big and old specimen for the species and at this size its usually eroded and has several pin holes, never gem, but this is about as good as they come. The ventral side is just fresh and amazing!!! Don't lose the opportunity, seldom offered with this amazing huge size!!!Found at night attached to the stones at high tide from 0m until 2m deep. Punta Paraman, Jalisco, Mexico. March 2016, Collected by Eduardo Amador Moreno.From my privet collection. Lets start with 2 euro Good luck!!!!ATTENTION!! ATTENTION !!! PRESENTLY I AM IN MEXICO LOOKING FOR NEW SHELLS. SO, UNTIL MARCH 2018 THE SELLER COUNTRY IS MEXICO.
