See-Through Snail Discovered in Croatia

Posted on the 19 September 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


A group of scientists have discovered an amazing new species of snail that have a see-through shell and a body. These tiny snails were spotted 3,000 feet down in the Lukina Jama–Trojama cave system in Croatia.

According to Popular Science, this species of snails have been named Zospeum tholussum, and they are a brand-new entry in the Ellobiidae family of hollow-shelled snails. These tiny things are said to be living in deep caves as they have adapted to live in darkness. As a result they have no sight. Scientists are still trying to figure out what these things eat or how they reproduce.

This is actually cooler than Disney’s “Turbo” movie. Although, I wonder what those brown things really are, the ones that’s inside its’ shell?
