My soul is full of longing for the sea
Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.”

Cool things about these snails:
When threatened, the snail seals its shell with a substance called operculum, which acts as a lid.
Their tongues release a liquid which softens their preys shells. After this, they drill a hole in the shell with their tongue and feed.
