海洋蝸牛或海螺殼是適於生活在海洋環境中的水生腹足綱軟體動物。它們是數量最多的群體,也是第一個出現的物種,陸地和淡水的軟體動物從中演化而來。

海洋蝸牛是高度專門和多樣化的生物。儘管所有蝸牛都有相同的基本特徵,但由於它們適應不同的生態位,而顯現出其差異。海洋蝸牛是軟體動物中種類最多的物種,與頭足類或雙殼類動物(牡蠣,蛤,石鱉科,鮑魚,烏賊,章魚等)不同,因為它們在現存的十萬種軟體動物物種中超過百分之五十。

我們選擇這種海洋生物來表達生物豐富的多樣性,以此作為在成龍消費和出售的貝類的起源。這些生物對於村民和鳥類也是必不可少的。它們保持了濕地生態系統的平衡,並以其各種形狀和口味使我們眼花繚亂。

Marine snails or conch shells are aquatic gastropod molluscs adapted to living in the marine environment. They are the most numerous group and the first to emerge, and from which the terrestrial and freshwater molluscs evolved.

Marine snails are highly specialized and diversified organisms. Although all snails share the same basic characteristics, they can present differences due to adaptation to different ecological niches. Marine snails are the most diverse species in the Phylum Mollusca formed by animals as different as cephalopods or bivalves (oysters, clams, chitons, abalone, squid, octopus, etc.), because they constitute more than fifty percent of the one hundred thousand species of molluscs that exist.

We chose to represent this sea creature to express the richness of diversity as the origin of the shellfish that are consumed and sold in Chenglong. These creatures are also indispensable for the villagers and birds. They maintain the balance of the wetland ecosystem and dazzle us with their variety of shapes and flavors.
