Hi fellow permies,

Just a heads up to let youse guys know that you, too, can become famous!  Want to get your name on a scientific paper?  Scientists at The University of Nottingham hoping to study the genetics of an ultra-rare garden snail are asking the public for its help in finding the lonely mollusc a mate.  Jeremy the snail is left-handed: his spiral goes to the left.  All other snails are right handed.  Apparently, his naught bits are on the wrong side, so he has no luck with the ladies.  Go here to find out more info!

That is adorable.  Can we change the title to "Sinister Snail Seeks Soulmate with Similar Spiral" and add it to the singles forum?

I'm reminded of this...

I'm pretty sure that muscovies have similar trouble if they try to mate with other duck species.
