Welcome to "Peter's Seashells." Mollusca is a huge and varied group of animals; the phylum encompasses about 100,000 species living in nearly every habitat on earth. This site is devoted to the study of molluscs, especially their fantastic and beautiful shells. The shells shown on the pages of this Website are from my personal collection and are but a minute sampling of their amazing variety. Please stay, browse, learn, and above all, enjoy.
