Considered as a living fossil. With great patience, not evolved much during last 500 million years. Due to the unique shape of their shell (cutaway of the shell shows logarithmic spiral chambers), being killed every where...many modern architectures are also influenced by the same shape…

(surprisingly same logarithmic spiral shape is also seen in several natural phenomenon, e.g. approach of an insect to a light source!, approach of a hawk to its prey!, the nerves of the cornea!, in cyclones!, in our own galaxy (Milky Way) and in other galaxies!) (Source: Wikipedia)

Looking at them is almost similar to seeing a living dinosaur!!!
