Museum in a Box – Snails, Slugs and Squids
Boxes are currently available each school term for set loan periods of three weeks. Museum in a Box can be sent to and collected from any educational institution within New South Wales.
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.
