Mollusca includes organisms as snails, octopuses, squid, clams, scallops, oysters, and chitons.
Mollusca are organisms that typically have a "head" and a "foot" region. Their bodies are often covered by a hard exoskeleton (an external covering providing both support and protection).
They range in distribution from terrestrial mountain tops to the hot vents and cold seeps of the deep sea, and range in size from 20-meter-long giant squid to microscopic aplacophorans, a millimeter or less in length, that live between sand grains.
