Snapshot: Native Tantalus tree snails

One nice thing about hiking on cool cloudy days is that it give you a better chance to see native snails. This little guy is an Auricullela minuta/perpusilla cruising around on a Cyrtandra grandiflora. There were even some on invasive cestrum as well.

While it’s no Achatinella, it is still nice to see some native tree snails have survived in the Manoa area.
