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.
