LARGE Apple Snail Shell

Apple Snail egg clusters were the photograph posted yesterday for Macro Monday over on http://lisaschaos.com/.

Today’s photo is the LARGE shell of a Florida Apple Snail (kindly being held in the palm of dh’s hand and yes, he needs a manicure). The flat guitar pick looking thing is its protective “door” (my technical term). They were found lying on a path at the lake most likely a result of being the meal of a limpkin or white ibis that frequent this area.
