Today is a wet and damp day and so consequently some of my snails are out and about.
My little garden is a haven for slugs and snails as I never kill any of them, I just plant things that they don't eat.
Most people don't like these creatures but I do...
Coming back from shopping there was a large one wandering about looking for decaying leaves and so I captured him in a photo.
I called for Tom to get my camera and he decided that it was a good idea to snap me as I was begging for him not to be a silly xxxxxxx
It made me wonder how long they live as this one's shell was the worse for wear and looking a bit scratched and I found out that they can live from 5 - 25 years depending on the species.
I also found out that if you don't want them coming back you should take them 65 feet away from your property and that should stop them returning, otherwise they will find their way home again.
I thought that this one was looking at me, see the little black dot , but no, it seems that they don't have good eyesight or hearing and they rely on smell so he/she must have caught a whiff of me. lol
