I LOVE snails…no matter how much they eat and leave slime trails and all that. Can’t resist them and get upset if I accidently step on one when hiking.
EVEN though they munch on gardens…destroy my mushrooms…and even make a mad mess of whatever they slide over……….I can’t help but love watching them. It’s not like they can take off and dissappear without me getting a glance at them or a photo……they cant’ race away out of sight before I even see what they were…….they don’t BITE or inject venom…..they carry their homes with them….so….why NOT love them?

  • I’ve loved snails ever since I was tiny…I would find them in my mom’s garden in California and think just how beautiful their swirls were. Once I got to college, I set up a fish tank and started watching the aquatic ones………my fascination and love of them has yet to fail :o)

    I love them too Carla! Wouldn’t it be nice to go in slow motion for a few days? :)

  • I wonder if they see the world as something that zooms right by? :o)
