Malacology at HMNS….Moluscos en el HMNS



Malacology is the study of mollusks – invertebrate creatures with soft, unsegmented bodies, many of which house themselves in shells. This fascinating and highly diverse group of animals includes more than 100,000 species, ranging in size from snails so small that we can barely see them to giant squids more than 60 feet long.
The Strake Hall of Malacology highlights these creatures through models, fossils, dioramas, living specimens, and hundreds of rare and spectacular shells.

Malacología es el estudio de los moluscos – criaturas invertebradas con cuerpos blandos, no segmentados, muchos de los cuales se albergan a sí mismos en las conchas. Este grupo fascinante y altamente diverso de animales incluye más de 100.000 especies, que van desde el tamaño de los caracoles tan pequeñas que apenas podemos ver a los calamares gigantes de más de 60 pies de largo.
El Salón Strake de Malacología destaca estas criaturas a través de modelos, fósiles, dioramas, los especímenes vivos, y cientos de conchas raras y espectaculares.
