The first time I came across this word was after I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education. I was looking to become a physical trainer and the equipment I first learned to work out on was called nautilus.

The name came from the fact that the machine used chains with sprockets designed in the shape of the nautilus. Little did I know that I’d be writing a blog post on them thirty years later.

The article is entitled “Elusive Sea Creature with Hairy, Slimy Shell Spotted After 31 Years” by Elizabeth Goldbaum at LiveScience. The fact that they are scavenger’s of big, dead fish also reminded me of how important it is to have diversity in our big, beautiful oceans.
