nisam nikada, a to uvijek gledam, koliko se sjećam riječi profesorice iz zoologije, desna uzvojnica kod puževa je česta koliko i ljudi ljevaci, a to znači da nije toliko rijetko :))

E kad smo već kod mora, ja sam u velikoj životnoj agoniji, naime unatoč mojoj evidentnoj kolekcionarističkoj opsesiji koja seže u najranije dane, ja nisam NIKAD NIKAD našla nijednog od ovih sa desnom uzvojnicom. Na moj očaj prijateljica, biolog, mi se samo smijala jer to naime, nije Toliko rijetko, pa me sad zanima jesi li ti kojeg našla?
