Show 1210 Animals – Invertebrates – Crustaceans and Mollusks
Soft bodied invertebrates that live in water or on land are grouped as mollusks. Snails, clams, mussels and squid are an example. Mollusks usually have a shell and a fleshy living part; this body has a very distinctive foot or way to move itself. Mollusks are one of the most varied life forms and can be found in places from mountains to oceans. Crustaceans are also invertebrates with a tough coating or shell on the outside of their body. Shrimp lobster and clams are an example. Our first project is a contemporary octopus with a very dominant eye. Then, itís a wall decoration of your favorite crustaceans using glue. Last, create pearl and shell beads from clay.
