Snails are born with rudimentary shells. On land snails, this embryonic shell can be seen even in the adult snail. The top of the shell [about one and a half whorls] is called the Protoconch and this has a different pattern from the rest of the shell. It is often used to help identify species of snail.
I like and thought this blog was interesting because it show the beauty ang rarity of each and every snail as well as giving it a story worth a thousand words. 🙂
This is very interesting work, the patterns are very pretty.
I found it interesting snails were born with shells
