Napoleon’s diving adventures with his team in the Indian and Pacific Oceans fetched him a large number of different catches. It includes conches, fossils, corals, shark and shark teeth, crabs, sea snakes, shells, sponges, stuffed fish, sea urchins, lobsters, and many other aquatic life forms. All of these can be expected in the museum so that they add a lot of variety to the collection. A whale skeleton is also present here that adds to the considerable excitement that can build up while looking at the items.
The Corfu Shell Museum is, no doubt, a treasure trove for many rarely-found species so that many people from across the world visit here. Practically, shells and fishes from the Fiji Islands, Australia’s Coral Dam, Samoa Islands, and the Philippines are on display here. A particular shell, known as the Melo Amphora belongs to the Volutidae family and is considered to be the biggest in the world. It is generally found in the Dampier archipelago’s Rosemary Island off the northern coast of Australia.
