A couple of days ago, Lila got her snail experiment off and rolling...or is that crawling? We're seeing how the phosphorus drip affects how fast snails grow in the different temperature streams. We spent the day finding the smallest snails we could.

Aren't they so cute? Wait you can't see them?

Then we got a picture of each set so we can measure their shell size using image processing software back in the lab.

Ready for their closeup

Then they got settled in their new homes in the streams. We'll let them sit and eat and grow for a few weeks before taking them out for final measurements.
