Liguus Tree Snail

    Newer Older

    Liguus Tree Snail, Everglades National Park, Florida. These snails are especially notable for their relatively large size, and for their often brightly-colored shells, which sometimes have complex color patterning. Because of their visual appeal, the shells have been the target of heavy collection pressure — a serious issue since some varieties are very scarce, and some are believed to have become extinct within the 20th century.

      Unfortunately this seems to be the story of many of the snails here in Hawaii too.
