Snail (in the) Mail.....


I decided to host a snail swap after a discussion on one of the yahoo groups I belong to got onto the topic of the little pesky garden critters, and whether or not they have eyes, and if so, where are they! I googled the subject and the info I found stated that they do indeed have eyes and that they are placed atop the little antennea like things on their heads. So the call for snail swappers went out, and slowly but surely, they started to make their way into my mailbox, (the one at the end of my driveway!) I am posting the photo of my little escargoians after they came out of the oven. I need to decide which I am swapping though. As you can see by the photo, i decided to give mine eyeballs IN their heads as opposed to on their antennae! I think they are cuter that way. The largest one is approx. 2" tall, and as usuall, i have to challenge myself to see how small I can go. i could have gone smaller, but did not have any teeny shells, so I quit while I was a head. Hope you like 'em!
