Giveaway Monday – Wooden Hawaiian Tree Snail


Originally uploaded by mamarootsgifts

as i show you picture of this cutey, i want to give you a little information about the plight of this beautiful little snail. from explorebiodiversity.com:

“On the island of Oahu, there lives a group of snails found nowhere else in the world. They belong to the endemic Hawaiian family Achatinellidae. These small snails are isolated on Oahu’s mountain ridges and have evolved through allopatric speciation into a multitude of different species. Yet, their fate is in our hands. All the remaining species are threatened with extinction in our lifetime.”

You can go to their website for more information about these fascinating creatures. Although you most likely would never find a Hawaiian Tree Snail on a ginger plant, I find them fascinating and wanted to share them with my subscribers. Watch the video for fascinating information! There are only about 8 species of the Oahu Tree Snails left in their native environment and each species lives in a different area of the island. They are completely isolated from one another.
