    A seashell is the common name for a

    hard, protective outer layer that

    was created by a sea creature.

    A shell is a part of the body of a sea creature.

    Some seashells are home to some living creatures

    where as others are waiting to be washed on to drying land.

    Seashells are most often found on beaches or

    other parts of the coastline.Seashells have been

    admired, studied and used by humans for many different

    purposes throughout history and pre-history.Most of the

    20,000 species are marine including clams, mussels, oysters

    and scallops.


    Bivalves are also called pelecypods.

    Bivalves are often the most common seashells that wash up

    on large sandy beaches or in sheltered lagoons.

    About one third of the species are Bivalves.

    They can sometimes be extremely numerous.
