So do snails. Case in point: this newly-hatched leafy hornmouth snail, getting ready to leap from his sheltering holdfast.
|Moving right along.|
A moment later, he had dropped down on a thread of slime and ballooned off in the current. I caught up with him on the far end of the tank, now on the sand and burrowing fast, soon out of sight.
Good luck, little snail! And a Happy New Year to all!
