ok so, i know i cant touch the dead bodies/carcasses of non kosher animals, like i cant go up and touch a dead raccoon right? but arnt sea shells the dead bodies of non kosher creatures? why is it ok for me to go pick up sea shells off the beach, but if i have a non kosher animal as a pet that dies i have to handle it with gloves and treat the spot it died in in a special way until its clean, ect?
maybe a stupid question: why is it ok to touch seashells? (explained questions below)
