Powelliphanta (NZ native snail) by Graeme Hitchcock
A native New Zealand carnivorous hermaphrodite snail are among the largest snails in the world. Their oversize shells range in hues of red and brown to yellow and black. They lay 5 to 10 large eggs (up to 12mm long) a year and are like birds eggs, living for up to 20 years. No snail was killed in the making of these glass versions - the artist was lucky enough to be given a wax version.
