Snail

Asperitas sp (?)

Description:

Colourful Snail. Not very sure, but could be from the genus of Asperitas. Size of shell is around 1.5 cm, with yellow, blue and brown colours. Pics #2 & #3 shows smaller Snails with less blue colour on their shell.

Habitat:

High altitude forest

Notes:

Although this species is not listed in the endangered list, but its possibly an undescribed species which could also be rare. I have changed the location to Manila, Philippines to avoid disclosing the exact location.

Thanks, @Ashutosh, @Francisco and @armadeus for your kind comments.

I saw several of this Snails during the trip, a few were much smaller and its interesting to note the blue circle becomes more prominent as the shell gets bigger. I guess as they gets bigger, the newer shell turns from yellow to green and eventually to blue :)
