|Succinea sp. Amber snail.|
Thanks to Red Centre malacologist Mark Carter who was happy to identify this as Succinea for us - no snails needed to be harmed. Commonly known as Amber Snails, the entire genus are air-breathing land snails.
|With a 5 cent piece for scale you can appreciate how delicate these snails are. The current drizzly weather is perfect for heading out to find some of our local native snails.|
