Caption

Amazonian giant snail. This large gastropod mollusc is from the Megalobulimus genus, which consists of species found in South America. Adult Megalobulimus snails can reach lengths of around 8 centimetres. Like most land snails, this one breathes air, and has a shell constructed from calcium carbonate. At left are the snail's eye stalks (ommatophores). Snails are invertebrates, crawling over surfaces that they lubricate by secreting mucus. The mucus also prevents them from drying out. Snails are generally herbivorous. Photographed in Ecuador.
