The pansy shell is an icon for Plettenberg Bay in South Africa and a Protected species under the Biodiversity Act, 2004 (Act 10 of 2004). Though they are called ‘shells’, it is actually the skeleton of a sea urchin! The name “pansy shell” comes from the 5 petal flower pattern on the top of the skeleton.
