Mollusca: Class Polyplacophora(chitons) See also: [Art History (index)] [TIME LINE] (brought to you by Acme Time Conveyor Products)
Mollusca: Class Polyplacophora(chitons) These beautiful creatures consist of a snail-like (but having no protruding head) covered by eight segmented plates and inhabit tidal areas and slowly digest algaes there. Their "foot" provides such good suction that they can maintain their place during the crashing waves and such, and yet like gastropods (snails) they can slowly make their way along the coastal rocks where they live.
