Everyone seems to be doing a good job on filling the pages. Anyway, here are some Questions you might think about: 1. What kind of Hermit Crab lives in a tusk shell? (Dr. Abbott casually mentioned in one of his books that a hermit crab inhabited a tusk shell. Does the hermit crab pull the shell or carry it? 2. Why is the operculum of the Door snail (Land) called the Clausilium? 3. Does anyone know of a mollusk species in which the male is larger than the female, except maybe the Pistol Grip, Tritogonia verrucosa (river mussel)? 4. Are there acids other than carbonic (for boring) and sulfuric (for killing). produced by mollusks? Usually I let someone else answer "your " questions. Glen Deuel
