Thurs ... Friday Gastropod

Moving a museum collection is not a task to be taken lightly. And when the shift involves several million mollusc specimens, it takes a while for everything to settle into place. Now the shells are in their trays and the wet specimens are on the shelves. But some items won't be unpacked until they're required. When they're models from long-dismantled displays, they might be tucked away for ever.

A gift pack of Helix pomatia

A screw-on leech (Not sure why it's hanging around with the snails.)

A box of Victaphanta

Love the screw on leech.

Every home should have one. I reckon it could make a good door knocker (with a few adjustments).
