Banana Slug – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the California Banana Slug:

The California Banana Slug is one of three species of land slug native to the damp, coastal areas of the Pacific northwest. They are commonly found the coniferous redwood forests, in environments that provide the moisture and food for the slug to survive. Banana Slugs are detritivores, or decomposers. Which means they often feed on the decaying organic matter on the forest floor. Through the consumption of these materials, the slugs themselves are then eaten by other animals of the forest, so the slugs are critical in the recycling and reuse of the organic matter of the forest. The Banana Slug is the mascot for the University of California, Santa Clara.

They are fairly small - only about 1 inch long. Unlike nudibranchs, flamingo tongue snails have a shell; however, the shell is typically not visible in living animals due to the mantle flesh covering it. When alive, the snail appears yellow-orange with irregular shaped spots ringed in black. However, the mantle can be retracted, exposing the shell. This snail is extremely over-collected and this has led to called for it to be protected.

It is the largest gastropods in the Americas, and one of the largest univalves on the planet, with a shell that can reach 24 inches (60 centimeters.) While not a "true" conch, is is like some of the genus of Strombus a predatory sea snail. When the snail is smaller the coloration of the shell is quite vivid and bright, but this coloration tends to fade as the animal ages, with the shell becoming more gray and white. The snail is commonly found in weed and mud flats from the low intertidal to shallow subtidal zones, usually in about 20 feet or water (6 meters.) It is the official shell of the state of Florida in the US.

Information about the Giant African Land Snail:

The Giant African Land snail is a species of large, air-breathing gastropod member of the Achatinidae family. They are native to the forests of East Africa, but have been introduced widely into Asia, and Pacific and Indian Ocean islands and the West Indies. They are recognized now as one of the worst invasive species on the planet, and they have devastated ecosystems where they have been introduced. They feed on plants, fruits, vegetables and even sand, small stones and concrete as calcium sources. They will even eat other snails.

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Hawaiian or Oahu Tree Snail:

This particular Hawaiian Tree Snail (Achatinella fulgens) is a critically endangered gastropod endemic to Hawaii. It is part of the family of Oahu tree snails which were devastated by the introduction of non-native snail and plant species to their fragile ecosystem. The snails are generally nocturnal, and can be found on native trees and large bushes, where they graze fungi from the surfaces of leaves and stems. Adults have both hermaphrodites male and female parts. When giving birth, the young are born live. Oahu tree snails are today restricted to mountainous forests above 1500 feet.

Oregon Hairy Triton – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Oregon Hairy Triton:

The Oregon Hairy Triton is a member of the Gastropoda family, which are marine mollusks. It is a large predatory snail. It can be found along the coastline from Alaska, all the way down the Pacific Coast to California. They are also found on the other side of the ocean in Northern Japan. While not much is really know about the feeding habit of these snails, it is believed they prey on other mollusks and perhaps even sea urchins. Despite the common name, they are not hairy, but instead are covered with periostracum, which is a thin organic coating or "skin" which is the outermost layer of the shell. The name was given to honor the Oregon Territory by conchologist John Howard Redfield in 1846. Many decades later this gastropod was named the official state shell of Oregon.

Sea Lemon – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Sea Lemon:

The Sea Lemon is a nudibranch, usually growing to about 1-3 inches (25-75mm) but is can grow much larger. This species may produce a lot of sweet, fruity-smelling mucus when disturbed, and this will cause some predators to release them. They are native to coastal waters from Kodiak Island, Alaska to Isla Coronados in Baja, California. These gastropods are common in low intertidal, on rocky shores and in and around harbor pilings. This is the largest of California nudibranchs. It has a penetrating, fruity odor, which may be used to fend off predators. It feeds on a variety of sponges. It may also ingest quantities of organic detritus. Studies show that individual nudibranchs are conservative in their food habits; they tend to keep eating the same food species, even if they are transferred to other sites. Spawning period varies with location, but extend for several months. The mating is reciprocal; partners may be of vastly different size. Buy a Digital Download
