West Indian Bulimulus

Bulimulus guadalupensis

Description:

I found an empty snails shell, on the back patio, at 11:00 a.m. in the morning. This snails shell, had a large hole in it. This snails shell, was three fourths of an inch long, and three eights of an inch wide. This snails shell, has six whorls on it. The colors of this shell, was: light brown, medium brown, and dark brown. There were also some dark lines, running vertically down the shell, and a little to the side. Snail, is a common name, that is applied most often to land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod Mollusca. When the word snail is used in this most general sense, it includes not just land snails, but also thousands of species of sea snails and freshwater snails. Phylum: Mollusca Class: Gastropoda

Habitat:

A land snail, is any of the numerous species of snail, that live on land. Many of these operculate land snails, live in habitats or micro habitats, that are sometimes ( or often ), damp or wet, such as for example, moss. Snails don't like to be where it is too hot, but they often find plenty of solace, in the shaded areas. Snails are quite plentiful in the world, so it shouldn't come as a surprise, to learn they are found in very diverse habitats.
