The first phase of
Now, we know the species that can be found in those island. However, we also want to know why these islands are differ in their land snail’s composition? Thus, we begin with the second phase of the project – the snail's ecology and evolutionary biology.
During the last fieldtrip (together with & thanks to boss Hamid, Dato Noramly and Niza), we have started to look at their ecology and behaviour of some species. Also, we brought back some living specimens for some experimental studies. Now, they are being kept in INSECTARIUM.
Amphidromus sp. and its eggs
Obba cf. marginata, In Sabah, this genus only can be found in TSMP. Obba is a very speciose genus in Philippines. How did they get to TSMP?
Look like marine species? But this is freshwater Neritina. Collected during the night - in a small......stream. Had visited the stream twice (Apr 2007 and May 2007) but never seen them.....but found them during this trip (Aug 2008)......strange.....
You wouldn't see anything great looking through one - just a simple eye that is dark in nature, a little bluish on the sides, more wrinkled skin around it.. then you start to see the rough eyebrow. The animal might've been seeing something else, that was so different, a large eye with another weird bipedal animal behind it.. and it suddenly burst with a flash, and again!
