    Vinthi supplied the amazing Bullia videos with the BlueBottle which is incorrectly attributed
    Dr. Winfried Peters:
    Dr. Peters spent hours sorting through his research and sending me notes and files. His research is what got me excited about O.semistriatta and I can't be more grateful to have had his help. I have listed a number of his papers further below, and I have made a donation to leatherbacktrust.org in his name.
    Nathan Robinson:

    thexvid.com/channel/UCBQB...
    Nathan was extremely helpful and generous with his time and footage and gave my early script a once over. His research is pretty amazing - on turtles and the giant squid. His hermit crab video is so great in its entirety. Sub to his channels!
    Dr.Jon-Paul Bingham
    One of cone snail feeding videos came from this lab and it was such an excellent example of the behavior! Thank you so much!
    Dr. Mande Holford
    Dr. Holford does amazing research on the toxicology of Conus and shared two amazing clips.
    Alysia Daines
    Alysia helped me identify the O.Semistriatta in the first place and led me to Dr. Peters. Thank you!!

    This is so hilarious I'm so glad I understand English. If you try showing this to a friend that is not fluent in English they will stay silent missing all the jokes and assuming the narrator is just explaining what is happening in that scene. Following that they would say that was nice. While you are trying your best to not laugh before the punchline

    All kidding aside, these videos are amazing and educational. To know that there are killer snails that surf is, well, terrifying, in a cute, mucusy, fish eating, paralyzing, make up words as I go kinda way. It sure would have made studying Marine Biology a lot more fun and interesting to say the least. Like the way I learned Prawns are cannibals from a Mike Wozniak song.

    The the foreskin flaps are pretty neat for surfing and to get it below the sand for it's getting food jaw action.

    Just wanted to bring attention to that dedication at the very end "to all the janitors working in essential businesses." Especially now their job is super important but usually overlooked. Thank you for helping keep all of the people working and their families safe by cleaning and sanitizing, likely under even more pressure than usual and dealing with time consuming protocols like sanitizing every doorknob every shift and the like. It's seriously important, and I hope that when this is all over the rest of humanity doesn't make it go right back to being a thankless job because a cleanly world is a better one even in the best of times.

      "Time consuming protocols"?
      Bruh janitors are paid to clean. That's the literal job description.
      I'd be furious if janitors prior to covid were NOT sanitizing doorknobs. What the fuck were they doing prior to now?

      @hainley simpson Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but ease and simplicity have nothing to do with it. If a job is necessary, then you should pay a living wage and offer benefits for it. How easy the job is and how easy it is to replace the person doing it is irrelevant. No one should work for less than the cost of living and be expected to never take a vacation or go to the doctor.

      @Pendlera Exactly janitorial isn't easy or as simple as people like to think you have to use certain products in a certain order and then you need to what to lock and unlock.

      @hainley simpson Thankless is fine if people stop using "easily trained job" to mean "doesn't deserve a living wage or compassion". Vote for higher wages and better benefits for essential workers. #RememberinNovember

    My sweet autistic grandson may have met his one true love! So engrossed watching Millie and Abby that he didn't asked the repetitive questions. Don't know if he listened to story but he was most in the spectacle! Thanx for all your wonderful films, we watch daily!

    The scene at 5:25 reminds me of the film Enemy Mine, when that freaky snake-tongue creature ate the turtle-alien. Even to this day, that scene still gives me the creeps!

    Oh my word! This is the most fun and educational piece of art that just now teased me with some foreplay! I wish there were content like this back when dinosaurs once ruled the earth. School would've been fun for a change....and I would've been a smarter fossil today!

    I just love that moment, around 6:45, when I realize that I've been envisioning the two snails at the completely wrong scale. I had assumed that the videos up to that point were to scale, and the predator snail was around 3-4 inches in length. Then to see that the big monster snail was smaller than a fingertip, and this whole drama was happening at such a tiny scale, it was just a very amusing little moment of perspective shift. Thank you for the experience.

    Where was this when I had to write a paper on snails for school at a time when there was almost NO information about them in books or nature shows?! And that was not all that long ago, folks.
