This video shows a snail crawling in in its tank. The video is part of a project to track the movement of snails in 3-d space. It taken at 1 frame every 50 seconds and lasts for 13 frames, so I hope its short enough for you to have a look! During this time it crawls across the face of the tank and round the side.

You can look at the analysis software Julian Derry and I have devised to report the 3-d position of the snail in the tank. A sample frame analysis is hown here .
