The Snails, Slugs and Squids box explores the amazing world of Molluscs. Molluscs are soft-bodied animals without backbones.
The empty shells we find on the beach are the remains of dead molluscs. Most molluscs live in or near salt or brackish water. A few kinds live in fresh water and others live on land. This box discusses the way different molluscs develop and what they look like.
