A rare tree snail

From Sumatra, Indonesia - this is original footage one of the rarest tree snails known, Amphidromus (Goniodromus) bulowi Fruhstorfer, 1905 - only rediscovered a century after its original description in 1905 and unfortunately well on its way to extinction.

Video uploaded thanks to Mr. John Abbas.

  2. Hi David, great to see a rare snail videoed at last! With deforestation raging into its habitat, this mighty sadly be the first and last footage of this incredible Amphidromus.
