Gastropod anatomy from photographs of live animals

One can learn much about gastropod anatomy by watching live animals and studying their photographs. In fact, there are certain aspects of gastropod anatomy that are hard to appreciate in preserved specimens. Some examples with nice photos are in this article of mine that recently was published in Mollusk World, the magazine of the Conchological Society of Great Britain and Ireland. A pdf copy is available here.
