Snail of the day

I'll expand this post when I get a better picture of this handsome camaenid land snail from the Northern Territory. In the meantime, sit back from the monitor so you don't notice that it's not entirely in focus and imagine yourself on a beach in Arnhemland. (Evict any thoughts of crocodiles from your mind.)

The shell is about 3 cm across, which makes it one of the larger land snails in that part of the world.

I'll alert the resident artist here to this ones photograph, maybe there's an artwork it might inspire!
