This important new book is a comprehensive guide to the many marine mollusks found off the Kenyan coast. The author has covered in this book 932 species and subspecies and has 914 of them photographed in sharp color photographs. There is also descriptive material about these shells giving you such basic information as to size, physical characteristics, and where they were found in Kenya. While most, if not all of the shells in this book can be found in the generalized shell identification books it is a pleasure to have all of this material from the Western coast of the Indian Ocean available in a single volume.
