    Brilliant … how did you get so many snails in one spot? Excellent♥

  • Found them all in the front yard, who said snails were merely pests!

    Although I have no idea where your backyard is…I’m going to take a guess and call these California Land Snails……….
    NOW…on my way to see where u’r from. :o)

    Sadly this is an introduced species, Cantareus aspersa. Native to the Mediteranium (spelled realllly bad…sorry)……it’s common name is Common Garden Snail. I grew up in California with these all over and when I visited again this past year brought empty shells back with me as they don’t survive where I’m at now. These are used in lots of scientific studies as well as being prolific in the pet trade.

  • I live in Australia and these are our common garden snails and are baited continually.

    Sad that introduced species can take over so successfully! In places like Hawaii they’ve introduced another type of snail that preys on snails……..in hope that they’d take out snails like this one. sadly…it’s taking out the native species as well!
    This particular snail was introduced in many locations in hopes of a food source! Escargo…ew. Sadly (depending on how you look at it) the meal didn’t work out but the snails did. They’re located all over the globe now. :o(
