It's a phylum that I like very much. Specially Cuttlefish & Octopus which are often curious and also the small colorfull seaslugs.


The mollusc phylum ("soft body") groups 5 classes :

  • Cephalopods with cuttlefish, octopotus, squid...
  • Gastropods with sea snails (limpet, rough turbo, ...) seaslugs (tricolore doris, stripped tritonia, orange godiva, ...)
  • Lamellibranchs/bivalves with the fan mussel, lima, flask-shell, mussels, oysters...
  • Polyplacophora primarily the chiton
  • Scaphopods with the common tusk

In the videos below, you will find species that we meet very frequently in the Gulf of Aigues-Mortes. 


I invite you to (re)discover them and come here to watch them underwater!
