Close Up View of Neohelix mating

Aydin had a request for something a little slower and closeup. I grabbed a series of 6 frames from one of the last "kisses," cropped it close, and turned it into a quick animation:


  1. How long did this "kiss" actually take?
    I will try to remember tonight to look up in Glenn Webb's papers for an account of the mating of Neohelix.

  2. It lasted about 2 or 3 minutes, judging from the interval between photos.
