|Bubble snail extravaganza|
Posted by Merry on June 17, 2021 at 10:40:01:|
In lockstep with a primordial urge, hundreds of Gould’s bubble snails emerged from the silt in King Harbor and congregated on clumps of decaying algae. They were intent on a single purpose - to stir up the old gene pool and ensure the next generation of Gould’s bubble snails. We estimate that the mating aggregation lasted 4 days. Late afternoon on the fourth day, bubble snails were bent on leaving the algal field, all headed toward the open channel. In barely 3 - 4 ft. vis, I also attempted to capture this extraordinary scene with a wide-angle lens.
Bulla gouldiana (2 in.) is an herbivorous headshield slug.
