Hola Gustavo, me alegro que les haya gustado esta rareza!!! Este huevo tan particular (ovicápsula) es fabricado por un caracol marino, Adelomelon brasiliana, dentro del cual deposita sus embriones mezclados con un líquido con proteínas y azucares que le sirven de alimento!!! Los caracoles crean este gran huevo (un poco más grande que el huevo de gallina) con una membrana parecida al plástico pero un poquito más blanda!!! A veces.. por la acción de la marea y los fuertes vientos los huevos son arrastrados hasta la playa donde se los suele encontrar rotos, aunque en casos como éste, se pueden encontrar huevos enteros con los pequeños caracoles en su interior!!!

Muchas gracias por pasar, un saludo enorme, Toto

Thanks Que.K㋡!!! This container so special (eggs capsules) is made by a marine snail, Adelomelon brasiliana, within it lays its eggs and a liquid mixed with proteins and sugars that serve as food!!!! The snails create this big egg (a little larger than the chicken egg) with a membrane, like plastic, but a little softer .... they do to protect their tiny eggs and snails from predators!!! When small snails have grown enough, the big egg breaks and they are released into the sea!!! Smart nature, right? Sometimes... by the action of the tides and strong winds, the eggs are washed up on the beach where they are often found broken, but in such cases like this, you can be found whole eggs with small snails in it!!!

Friendly greetings, Toto
