Week 13- Fresh Kills Landfill, Staten Island

On April 27, 2023 at 9:38 am, I visited the Fresh Kills Landfill, on Staten Island. On this day, the weather was 53 degrees fahrenheit and it was cloudy with some sun and previously raining in the early morning. This picture was taken in the mound transects located in the middle of the landfill. This picture shows a brown lipped snail, also known as Cepaea nemoralis. The brown-lipped snails have a brownish-yellow lip around the opening of their shell, which is usually lighter in color than the rest of the shell. The coloration of their shells can vary widely, however, and may range from light yellow to dark brown or even black. Brown-lipped snails are commonly found in a variety of habitats, including gardens, fields, forests, and other wooded areas. They are herbivorous, feeding on a variety of plant materials, including leaves, stems, and flowers. Brown-lipped snails are also known to be an intermediate host for several parasitic organisms, including some species of trematode and nematode worms.
