Elephant snail

Here is a photo of a live elephant snail on my hand at Flat Rock, Ballina.

Elephant snail, Scutus antipodes

See the Sea Slug Forum for more information on this beastie, and for a better view of the internal shell see Sea Shells of NSW. You can often see the shell by itself – this is the critter it comes from.
