Who’s that Pokémon?! I believe this shy sea snail is the “American star snail” (Lithopoma americanum). After seeing I’m gone with it’s two moving eyes, you can see it remove it’s trapdoor-like appendage (operculum) and venture out!

Paleodrama #3. Choosing a right spot to drill a clam can save days (!) of work for a gastropod. Not all succeed..... The hole that penetrates the shell was started at a different spot than an abandoned hole!

The shelled - a vision of elegance, grace, mucus. like this channeled topsnail (Calliostoma canaliculatum) don't get as much love as their more colorful shell-free cousins, but they're quite the majestic in their own right.

Day 5 no. 3: Blue glaucus. A.k.a, the cutest . This was my first try at combining gel pen and marker. The shiny metallic makes this more stylized than realistic, but I’m happy with how it turned out. Not so much with my photography of it, though!

From our collections: Murex troscheli. This was highly valued in ancient cultures because it secreted a reddish-purple dye, known as Tyrian Purple, used to colour cloth. The colour was a status symbol in Rome, worn by magistrates, generals and emperors.

Snails & slugs may not be our favourite creatures, but these 2 images I captured show that they can be fantastic subjects to photograph.

Paleodrama #4. How not to drill as a predatory gastropod? Drilling between the whorls of a gastropod on the suture. The predator did probably not feed through this incomplete hole. Poor predator, lucky prey!
