Snail evolution. Snails are hatched from eggs. When they hatch, they eat most of the shell, but a small part of it stays with them and that is the beginning of their shell. As the snail grows, so does its shell — in a spiral shape. New shell is added at the opening of the shell. In the center of the spiral is the part of the shell that the snail began life with. The shell is made from several layers. The thin outer layer is made from an organic substance known as conchiolin. The thicker layer underneath is formed from three layers of crystalline calcium carbonate, similar to the chicken egg of which you may be more familiar. The color of the shell depends on the types of food the snail is eating and also the type of snail.

     “My maiden name was Burger and his last name is Berger, so I went one letter from Burger to Berger. It gets better: His brother’s name is Bob and he was our best man. My dad’s name is also Bob, so we had two Bobs, Berger and Burger, at the wedding. Bob, his brother, was married to Linda. My name is also Linda, so we had two Linda Bergers. Everyone was confused.     “Then I go to the Secretary of State to change my name. ‘What’s your maiden name?’ Burger. ‘Now, what’s your married name?’ Berger. ‘No, no, we need your last name.’ I just gave it to you—Burger.”
