Steve Irwin Tree Snail

Found only in the 3 places in the wet tropics of North Queensland, the Snail Whisperer says that like its namesake, Crikey steveirwini is a unique creature with some interesting qualities that set it apart from other land snails.

This is an extremely rare species of snail. So far it has only been found in three locations, all on the summits of high mountains in far north Queensland and at altitudes above 1 000 metres which is quite unusual for Australian land snails.
