How shells are formed . Seashells are created by snails. When snails are first born, their skins are soft, then they harden and calcify and detach from the rest of the body…. They continuously grow around their own shells more and more, which is where the spiral comes from. When the snails die, the soft portion decays and the hard shell remains.. More . Some shells are also those of clams, scallops, or oysters. Depending on the location, any of these might be more numerous than the shells of snails. In any case, the process of formation is similar: A soft-bodied mollusk secretes calcium carbonate which accumulates as the shell as the animal grows, then the empty shell remains when the animal dies.
Seashells are, quite simply, the exoskeletons of mollusks. At Britannica.com, you can learn a good deal about the composition of seashells, including the three distinct substa…nces involved: an outer layer of the horny substance conchiolin, an intermediate layer of calcite, and a smooth inner layer composed mainly of calcium carbonate. But how does a mollusk actually create a shell? An article from Earth & Sky explains: The blood of a mollusk is rich in a liquid form of calcium. A soft, outer organ called the mantle concentrates the calcium in areas where it can separate out from the blood, forming calcium carbonate crystals. The mantle deposits sheets of the crystal in varying thicknesses. The individual crystals in each layer vary in shape and orientation. A facinating new field called biomimicry, which attempts to replicate Nature's materials, has recently generated detailed studies of abalone and conch shells in an attempt to understand the source of their amazing toughness and strength. This knowledge could be used to create unbreakable windshields and other scientific marvels. Largely Calcium Carbonate. scientific marvels.
well the shore line for one and in the ocean floor

Seashells eat sand and salt from the ocean
seashells are important because seashells can help save us from global warning !
usually an animal like a hermit crab or a snail it matters what kind of shell it is
Sea shells are largely composed of CaCO3 or Calcium Carbonate. This is also the main component of lime used to supply Calcium to soils which is readily leached from soils abov…e 700mm annual rainfall. Calcium Carbonate is the main constituent in mollusc shells, mammalian hair and nails, exoskeleton of insects, bills and toenails of birds as it can be accumulated slowly in the body of an animal and used in animal parts that require hardness.
No it does not have eyes but a little insect lives in side the shell.
i think they get there pattern by water erosion but im not sure
In Animal Life
Commonly referred to as a 'Shell', it is a hard, protective outer layer created by an animal that lives in the sea. It is the exoskeleton of an invertebrate. The shells are em…pty because the animal has died and the soft parts have been eaten by another animal or have rotted out.
No. Carnivores are meat eaters. Sea shells don't eat anything.
no because they are not magnetic and their not made of magnet
