Some 3D shapes will tessellate as for example a brick wall

Triangles.

Only an equilateral triangle, square and a regular hexagon can be used to make regular tessellations but there are innumerable polygonal and non-polygonal shapes which will tessellate by themselves, and others which will tessellate along with other shapes.

strait up yes

For any polygon, there will be other shapes such that, together, they can tessellate.

No not all shapes tessellate.

circles and octagon do not tessellate as they overlap each other or leave spaces between them.

I believe that regular shapes will only tessellate if the sum of their internal angles is a multiple of 180.

yes, most regular shapes can tessellate :)

There are many shapes: circles, ellipses, ovals (elongated circles), cardioids, any shape with a "hole" in it such as a annulus.Polygons will tessellate if combined with other suitable polygons.

Yes it does tessellate. * * * * * That is simply not true. No polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate with identical shapes.

If their shapes are suitably matched they can tessellate together.

Yes, many 3D shapes can tessellate, of course the cube, but also triangular and rectangular prisms. Spheres fit together in a regular repeating layout as well, but leave space between. There are also other shapes that can tessellate too, a portion of 3D n-imoes, for example, but aren't regular geometric shapes.
