Like most snails, most Banded Tulip shells have a right handed spiral. With the opening facing you, and the point up, the shell spirals to your right. A few, lucky snails in most species spiral to the left. Why does that make them lucky?
Nancy found this injured bat on the road to our house. We rescued it, and took it to the wildlife rehab center at Best Friends. You have probably heard the old saying that someone is "blind as a bat." How well do bats actually see?
