Banded Snail (Cepaea hortensis) by 

The Banded Snail (Cepaea hortensis) is a small species of snail (shell length of just 20mm) that is found throughout the UK except the most northern parts of Scotland because of the cold climates. They can be seen from March through to October; it is hibernating for the remainder of the year. The feed on most vegetable matter and live in hedgerows, gardens and around field edges. This image is quite a good example of this snail because it is more common now to see this species with faded bands or no bands at all, they can also be seen to be more pink than yellow like this image is.
