I have a relatively large number of blogs in my Google Reader, on a variety of topics that interest me. Every now and then something crops up that I think is worth redistributing. One of these was recently posted at The Snailwatchers Musings.
For convenience I repeat the whole post below.
"From September 1910 comes this short letter to the director of the London Zoo.It would be interesting to know which species are referred to here.A good candidate would be Megalobulimus oblongus which is present in Trinidad.As far a I know Achatina fulica wasn't known in that area in the early 1900's."
