  8. Lake Tanganyika Species
    As anyone who has ever kept these little Tanganyikans knows, unshelling a shell dweller isn't going to happen unless they want to leave their shell. Shellies can go into their homes and wedge themselves so well that even a predator can't pull them out. There are several techniques to getting...
