Snail story: Chapter 2

Well, I don't have quite enough time tonight to do this snail justice.  So I'll apologize for the delay, but I'll also provide a second photoanother clue to the identification of this species (see below).

I'll also tell you that this particular individual was ~8 mm long (measured from from left to right in the picture below), but that this species can reach a length of ~35 mm.  

This individual was found washed up on the beach in Bodega Bay.  The shell is quite worn (like sea glass).


More tomorrow!
