Banded Tulip with Dog Whelks

Banded Tulip internet

Dog whelks are found in the inter tidal zone, the area of the shore covered and exposed by tides.  They live all around the coasts wherever there are barnacles, oysters, or mussels. The banded tulip is also a sea snail.  In England, whelks are considered tasty and very popular.  An average whelk has 137 calories, 24g of protein,, .34g of fat and 8g of carbohydrates.  (Not for me–I’ll stick with peanut butter and crackers!)  For more information about this painting, click here.
