The Chambered Nautilus has fascinated scientists, mathematicians, and poets. It's most unique feature is a spiral-coiled, chambered shell. A newly hatched nautilus has a shell divided into four small chambers. As it grows, the Nautilus adds new chambers - adults have 30 chambers. As far back as the ancient Greeks, the shell of the Chambered Nautilus has been a symbol of perfection and can be described mathematically as a logarithmic spiral - a special kind of curve which appears in nature (and can also be seen in cyclones and spiral galaxies!)
