scallop a small invertebrate animal that lives in the ocean. A scallop lives inside of two shells that are attached to each other with a kind of hinge. These rounded, ribbed shells protect the scallop's soft body. The hinged shells can be opened and closed using a large muscle of the scallop. People sometimes eat this muscle. Scallops are mollusks and are closely related to clams and mussels. [4 definitions]
