Pelican
In Animals. The Hebrew tern ka'ath of Leviticus 11:18 is believed by some translators to be a reference to a pelican.

The text states that the above animal is to be regarded as non-kosher and unclean.

In Animals. It is presumed that the Purpura was one of the sources from which a blue dye for the Tabernacle was obtained. It is a non-kosher snail. See Exodus 25:4
