Shells are many species’ shelters or shields. They help keep these animals safe in their habitat and from predators. Animals with shells are mostly soft and vulnerable. Therefore they involve themselves to maintain the wildlife.

There are so many clam species, from the tiny ones to the giant ones. The clam has a simple, singular body piece and it needs two same-shaped shells to contain it. Sometimes, there are pearls found in some species.

#2. Prawn

A prawn has a soft shell covering its body. This is due to its high calcium diet. It helps to protect its vulnerable body. They are the animals that live in lakes, rivers and under the sea.

#3. Armadillo

These are the only mammal animals with shells. It is a leathery armor shell. North, Central and South America are their homeland. Otherwise, there are no other shelled mammals apart from them. 

#4. Crab
