The Science:

Nautiluses are marine creatures of the cephalopod family. Other examples of animals in this family include octopuses and squids. The shell of a nautilus grows with them as they age. Each section of the shell is a chamber separated by a septa. As a new chamber of the shell is completed, the maturing creature moves into it. The overall shape of the creature is considered logarithmic spiral, not a golden ratio spiral as is sometimes mistakenly thought.

Nautiluses live in the Indo-Pacific Ocean on the slopes of coral reefs. They have a lifespan of about 20 years which is fairly long compared to other similar creatures.
