The Mystery Begins...


Tonight while I was walking on the beach, I found this and thought I would send it to you as a natural science mystery question.

This is from a sea animal. In its body, there are 8 of these "plates." Two of the plates are a little smaller and more rounded on their ends. This sea creature is related to the clam and the octopus.
Can you guess what this sea creature looks like? Even better, can you discover what sea creature this belongs to?
Your friend, Ron

Wow, this is a mystery! Kylie says, "How should we know what this is? We haven't been to the ocean." But we think we might be able to figure this out with your help. May we play "20 questions" with you?
Question #1 - Is this a part of the sea creature's back?

Ah Ha! I thought this wouldn't be an easy mystery to solve! Even people who live out here on the coast often wonder what creature this is from.

In answer to your first question, no this is not from this creature's back because this animal belongs to one of the groups within the large group of
animals called the Invertebrates, meaning animals with no back bone. Insects are also Invertebrates, but this is not from an insect.

Have fun wondering.
