We are trying to find at least one of each of these shells. http://www.nature-discovery.com/shop/images/shells_florida_gulf_coast.jpg (I've always loved our shells and picked them up all my life. It used to be I could find tiny, perfect shells at the high water line, but they seemed to have disappeared over the years. :( )
Gulf Cartel Gulf Cartel One of the oldest cartels, the Gulf Cartel recently has lost influence, but is backed up by the Sinaloa cartel. Leader: Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez, alias "El Coss." The U.S. has a $5 million bounty on his head. Costilla Sanchez once allegedly held FBI and DEA agents at gunpoint with AK-47s and threatened to kill them. Territory: The cartel operates out of the state of Tamaulipas, with other bases in Matamoros
Osiel Cárdenas Guillén Cárdenas is a Mexican drug lord who is the symbolic leader of the Gulf Cartel. Originally a mechanic in Matamoros, he entered the Gulf Cartel by helping Chava Gómez (the capo at the time) and he later took control by killing Gómez, earning Cárdenas the nickname “el Mata Amigos” (The Friend-Killer).
