kimberley-020 Snoopy

tree snail,photo art,Kimberley coast

kimberley020 "Snoopy" a mangrove tree snail with a happy expression.

What looks like a mouth and nose to us humans is actually called his 'foot' which is in fact not a foot as we know it, but the large body of flesh that the snail uses to slide along the mangrove branches.

The snail's real mouth is at the top just near the 'feelers' and eyes.

Anthropomorphic art values in nature.
