Description

Another juvenile. No adults spotted so far this year.

Another juvenile showed up in the adjacent cluster of building, but went to ground before I could photograph it. This widens the known range of this colony slightly from last year.

Description

The first two images show a representative sample of snail shells collected from the sandy margin of the same patch of grass where I stumbled upon a live specimen the previous day.

There were a large number of empty shells, all extremely small. The UAE quarter-dirham coin included in the second image is about the same size as a US dime.

The third image shows a cluster of empty snail shells in situ at the edge of the lawn.

Higher-rez versions of these images are available upon request.
