There's a new record for the smallest land snail. Discovered in Malaysian Borneo by a team of Dutch and Malaysian biologists amongst another 47 species of varying sizes, the world's tiniest snail holds a shell of merely 0.50-0.60 mm width and 0.60-0.79 mm height.
The world's tiniest snail has officially been found in Borneo. Researchers have uncovered a minute shell with an average diameter of .7 mm that makes it the smallest new snail to be found.
Researchers may have uncovered the smallest snail in the world. The miniscule snails, which were collected in China, are so small that they are called "microsnails."
Researchers at the University of Queensland pain treatment have discovered thousands of new peptide toxins hidden deep within the venom of just one type of Queensland cone snail.
