While the basic anatomy of an apple snail is rather straightforward, it can be difficult to get a good understanding of the position of the organs in the coiled snail body. Therefore an interactive 3D-model of the anatomy of a female Pomacea canaliculata has been created.
In the next page one can turn and twist the snail body around with the mouse and add and remove organs to visualize the position and shape of the various organs.

1. The following page is about 500kb in size (model+applet+text and interface). Takes a while to load (depending on connection speed)
2. You need reasonably modern computer system to enjoy a smooth performance (PentiumII, Athlon or faster model).
3. You're browser need a Java plugin (most browsers have this as default).
