Mollusks


Overview

Overview

  • Mollusks Live in Fresh-Water, Saltwater, and Terrestrial Habitats

  • They are one of the most diverse groups having over 150,000 known species

  • They are Invertebrates

  • Reproduce Sexually

  • Move using locomotion which consists of the mantle

  • They Mantle also assists in Digestion using secretion

  • They use the Radula to scrape for food

  • All mollusks move using a foot

  • The Four groups of Mollusks are Chitons, gastropods, and Bivalves and Squid


Chitons

Chitons

  • Characterized by their segmented shell

  • Usually their habitat consists of rocky shorelines, and shelly ocean bottoms everywhere in the ocean

  • Body is Symmetrical

  • Covered by 8 plates

  • Protects itself by rolling up into a ball

  • Eat seaweed and algae

CHITONS


Gastropods

Gastropods

  • Consist of Snails, Slugs, and Welks

  • Most of the Gastropod family are herbivores, however, some gastropods are carnivores

  • Compared to Chitons, Gastropods are characterized by their gills and other body parts

  • Their shell is either internal or external

  • They have a torted body


Gastropods1

Gastropods


Bivalve

Bivalve

  • Characterized by two pressing shells

  • Joined by a dorsal end called a ligament

  • The shell is compressed

  • Most bivalves are filter eaters by some are carnivorous

  • They are found from seashore to deep-sea habitats

  • They cover and dig themselves in mud and sand for protection and or to live


Bivalves

Bivalves


Squid

Squid

  • Larger Head and a larger brain

  • Interior skeleton

  • Two Lateral Fins

  • Around the mouth there are 8 suck bearing arms, two contractile tentacles that are longer than the rest of the arms

  • The fastest invertebrate

  • Feed on fish by grabbing them with their tentacles, and eating them like a bird tears flesh
