Brachiopods are bivalves that live on the ocean floor. They are found in today's oceans and have a history dating back over 500 million years. Because of this they are considered to be living fossils. In the Paleozoic Era they were plentiful in all the oceans of the world.

Brachiopods are filter feeders, getting their nourshiment from tiny organisims floating in ocean water.They belong to the phylum Lophophorata and are related to bryozoans.

Brachiopods have a muscular foot called a pedicule.With this they can anchor themselves to the sea floor and even lift themselves up off the bottom of the ocean as pictured in the drawing on the right.
