Weird Sea Creature

At our gym, there's this shop that displays a large tank of sea creatures, corals, clownfish etc. The last time we were there, we noticed this really weird looking creature.

It looks like a snail, slightly bigger than my fist. A bit geli lah. Never seen it in my life and wonder what on earth it is.

That's a Nautilus - one of the oldest creatures that are still alive today dating from prehistoric times. Belongs to to the same family as Octopus, Squid etc. I think they're really creepy looking but I find them really fascinating. How fast does it swim??

i knew you'd be able to tell me! it moves fairly fast for a creature that doesn't seem to have fins and looks like a snail.

will see if i can take a video of it swimming one day.
