Dwight Willard Taylor (–) was a malacologist and paleontologist whose research on the systematics and biogeography of freshwater gastropods, particularly the Hydrobiidae and Physidae, resulted in numerous taxonomic innovations and led to extensive research by others.

Theirs slowness results from having no legs and using a single foot. The only group of mollusks that became active swimmers were the class of Cephalopods which include octopi, squids.

The Tulare Formation is the youngest of the three geologic rock deposits exposed in the Kettleman Hills; it is predominantly a nonmarine sedimentary accumulation that yields some 33 species of fresh water mollusks--more species of Pliocene fresh water mollusks, as as matter of fact, than any other Pliocene-age nonmarine rock deposit on the Pacific Coast: it produces 23 gastropods and Mollusks can be found in nearly every ecosystem on Earth, so it's not surprising to find them in Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

In much of the American southwest, isolation of suitable habitats often results in unique, localized species. Like in mountain ranges, where there is increased moisture and the mountain habitat is isolated by vast.

Description – Chitons are marine mollusks similar to snails and limpets in that they have a single shell on the top of the animal and a fleshy foot on the bottom.

Chitons also have a set of plates that make up the upper portion of the animal whereas limpets and snails have a single shell. Chitons blend very well in the environment and can be hard to see at times.
