Museum in a Box – Snails, Slugs and Squids
Museum in a Box® is available for set three week loan periods and can be sent to any educational institution across Australia.
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.
