Caption: Pond snail egg masses. Light micrograph of the underside of a white water lily (Nymphaea alba) leaf (green), showing a number of great pond snail (Lymnaea stagnalis) egg cases (sausage-shaped). Pond snails lay their eggs encased in jelly for protection. Most of the eggs have already developed into miniature snails complete with shells.
