I had a lot of fun creating these backgrounds. I had a few buckets of shells I'd collected after a big storm, so I thought why not scan them and do something with them. Here's the results. I'm not 100% sure of the shell names in all cases, but I did look them up and try to be correct on them. This Horse Conch Background is my personal work. My Specimen was about 12 inches long from tip to tip. You may use this Horse Conch Background FREE on your site if you'll simply provide a link giving us credit for its creation to either Tarzanna Graphics or to our sponsor, TaylorShopping.com.

From the Florida
State Web Site:
"The horse conch (Pleuroploca gigantea), also known as the giant band shell, has been Florida's official state shell since 1969. This shell is native to the marine waters around Florida and can grow to a length of twenty-four inches. Young horse conchs have orange-colored shells; adults have orange apertures."
You might find that you have more text color choices for this Horse Conch Background if you set the body of the page into a table. It will also make the page easier to read. The color used for the backgroud of this text is color #FFDBAA. At a Resolution of 1024X768, you should have the shell image down either side of this text.
I have set this into a DIV tag for a little bit of special effect using Microsoft Filters. You can find code for some of these nifty effects to use here
