the auction read: "These snails are a cross-breed of " Nassarious Vibex " an excellent sand sifter. And the " Ilyanassa Obsoleta " which is a very good glass cleaner and dose some sand sifting also. So this gives them the proper name of " Nassarious Obsoleta ". The " Nassarious Vibex " is usely found in warmer waters.
The " Ilyanassa Obsoleta " was introduced in Boston a long time ago and is normaly found in colder waters. Another name for the " Ilyanassa Obsoleta " is " Mud Snail ".
hey half the fun is dreaming it up!
