Video: Crushing Snail Shells…for Science

Some Center for Limnology grad students recently returned from Georgia’s Sapelo Island. It’s part of the UW-Madison class, “Zoology 750: Problems in Oceanography.” All students have to create individual experiments for the trip. But only one required “The Crusher”

CFL grad student, Alex Latzka, also shot some video of Samantha Oliver’s experiment and turned it into in-your-face footage of crushing in slow-motion. Enjoy!

  1. Especially liked “Snail crush in slo-mo”. I never knew hermit crabs wore hand-me-down shells. Makes me wonder what percent of them survive until they find a shell? Great video!
