ABSTRACT
Argonaut, or Paper Nautilus, an eight-armed mollusk, closely related to the octopus. Argonauts live in the open waters of temperate oceans. They are known for their attractive, paper-thin shells. Since the floating shells resemble small boats, mariners named them after the Argonauts of Greek mythology. Argonauts are primarily drifters but are capable of swimming, using a form of jet propulsion.
