1. Garden Snail On Stage


    from Stefan F. Wirth Added 51 4 0

    A garden snail (Cornu aspersum) from the Mediterranean area is presented as it would appear on a human theater stage. Thus the play with light and shadows was as important for me as to get, using a macro objective and a microscope, as close as possible to that fascinating mollusc.In the shining-through-light, internal structures, as e.g. movements of the feeding organ (radula = "tongue"), can be well observed. C. aspersum is a mollusc and member of the clade Gastropoda. Cephalopoda and Gastropoda together form a reoresent sister groups. They obviously are descendants of a common stem species and share the possession of shells. All molluscan shells are the result of ectodermal secretions (outer layer of the embryo). Following the internal phylogeny of Gastropods, it must be stated that the garden snail C. aspersum represents the land snails (Stylommatophora). All members of land snails reproduce as hermaphrodites. Gastropoda phylogenetically are for example characterized by an asymmetric body construction (= apomorphy). Within the Gastropoda, lungs evolved in the stem species of the Pulmonata. These respiratory organs are formed by a modified mantle cavity. This structure, which is named mantle in molluscs, is a specialized tissue-layer, covering the internal organs, which in Bivalvia and Gastropoda produces the shells. The land-lung-snails (Stylommatophora) evolved as apomorphies two pairs of retractile tentacles at the front part (=head) of the muscular foot. The endings of the first pair of tentacles bear the eyes. I own all copyrights for this video and do not allow any kind of use without my permission, I additionally do not agree with what is, for example in the US, called "fair Use", when it is based on my material.
