Conchology is the study of Seashells, mostly exclusive of the critter who made them. This is not Impudence on Parade. It is an acknowledgement that only recently could folks go where the shells come from. The only part anybody on land could hope for was a shell. But folks have collected shells for Ages.
Conchology is now a Science, not just a hobby. In the Renaissance, when folks started sailing hither-thither, the shell business got a boost. Huge collections were created by those who could afford it. And these same shells are the basis for many Museum collections today.
Rhinos can marvel at the range of colors and designs, but We are not often asked to curate these collections. Unhappily, We are both busy and clumsy. Well-meaning is not enough.
