Monadenia fidelis… Pacific Sideband

This land snail is the most common on the Pacific Coast of North America.

They are hermaphrodites commonly seen in the spring when the ground is moist. They have very poor eyesight and are completely deaf, so they rely heavily on their sense of touch and smell when finding food and are often seen travelling in irregular paths, even in circles.
