This may be the most beautiful snail I have ever seen. We saw a couple of them on the climb up Gunung Api to the Pinnacles overlook. Both were at high elevations. The snail had two structures that it rapidly wiped over the shell like it was cleaning it.The shell looked moist. I have had no luck with an identification. I found a couple of images on the Internet of the same snail taken by other climbing to the Pinnacles. Manuel took a video of the snail as it feeds and cleans its shell: www.flickr.com/photos/12817180@N06/4210019316/in/set-7215...
