A TO Z CHALLENGE - "Z" IS FOR ZOSPEUM THOLUSSUM
Zospeum tholussum, or the Domed Land Snail, lives some 3,000 feet under the ground in caves of the Velebit Mountain Range of Croatia. This land snail does not have eyes because they're unnecessary in the dark caves. They're only 0.08 inches long and move very slowly. They perhaps hitch a ride on other cave animals.
