Left and right-handed individuals ---ambidextrous Amphidromus!


Are the snails' bodies yellow too, or is it just their shells?


good question. they refuse to come out during the day though, when they hang tight on tree trunks/old walls. And the site is quite hazardous to visit at night. Any idea how i could get them to poke their bodies out in daylight?


I think that their bodies are grey. The one in my profile pic has a dark grey body and I recall the ones on Pulau Krakatau as light grey. (I know that's only two data points. Or one point and a dodgy memory.)

You could try dousing them with fresh water if you want them to come out. They might start moving if they think it's raining.
