Sometimes, a shell looks empty, but is it? Move your mouse pointer over the three shells above to see which one you could collect.

Finding interesting shells is fun, but in many places you are not allowed to take shells that have live creatures in them. Generally, it's best to leave live animals alone. That protects the original mollusk who made the shell or the hermit crab or other animal that moved into an empty shell.

In some places you are not allowed to collect shells at all. Look for signs showing rules for the beach you are visiting and help protect wildlife.
