Mollusca

Mollusks are a large group of invertebrate animals. Mollusks have soft bodies, and their bodies are not divided into rings like the segmented worms called T Print shirt Stone Neck Banana Republic Bateu 6waqW4S0F . Mollusks don't have legs, though some have flexible tentacles for sensing their environment or grabbing things. Most mollusk species grow a hard shell for protection, but their shell grows in only one or two pieces. It doesn't have joints like the exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans .

Most mollusk species only live in the ocean, but some live in freshwater or on land. In Michigan there are about 300 species of mollusks known, with more to be found.

There are three main groups of mollusks. Snails ( Gastropoda ) are the most diverse group, there are tens of thousands of species. Nearly all snails grow a spiral shell that is all one piece. A few snail groups have stopped growing shells; they're called slugs . The next largest group is Bivalvia , the Lion Fleece Fire Bogner Blue Ice Jacket EqFxAw . These are mollusks with two shells that they can close up tight for protection. Finally there is Cephalopoda , the squids and octopuses. They only live in salt water, so we won't say much about them here. They have no shells, but are larger, smarter, and faster than their relatives in the other groups. Squids and octopuses are all predators; they eat fish, crustaceans, and other mollusks.
