Paper nautilus

Females of this unusual octopus species sequester themselves in thin, translucent shells with which they drift across the open seas. Paper nautiluses, also called argonauts, secrete the shells to serve as cases for their eggs.

Hurricanes, galaxies, sunflowers and succulents all have inherent spiral shapes that conform almost perfectly to the ‘golden spiral’, which is derived from a mathematic formula. A golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral with a growth factor of ‘Phi’, which is the golden ratio – that means it gets wider by a factor of Phi for every quarter turn it makes.
