We had some snails in the fish tank, now replaced after they died. They are called Onion Snails and they keep the tank nice and clean as they eat all the algy. But the shell is quite interesting... All shot with the Raynox DCR250 on the 55-250.

1) The Shell (this was about 1:1)


2) Close up detail (about 2.5:1 if I got the ratio the right way around...)


3) More close up detail
