Brotia pagodula Brotia pagodula

(28.Nov.2007) From Southeast Asia we got a still rarely traded snail species. Brotia pagodula is a live-bearing snail, as an endemic species it can be found only in the Moei, a river between Myanmar and Thailand. Their strongly wound house, provided with numerous spikes, gives them a bizzare appearance. On the search for algae they graze all available surfaces. In the aquarium flakes and granulated food are eaten, just as naturally cucumbers and other vegetables.(Photo C.Luckhaup & F.Schäfer, Text K.Diehl)
