Day 32: Snails

There are snails just outside of our apartment plotting things.  They come out when it rains to remind us that they're there... and get stepped on.  Lucky for them, I'm not that heartless.  It's hard to portray their everywhere-ness in a single photo because they're small and don't like to gather for group pictures because it takes too long.  However, I managed to get a few individual shots.

The two on the ground had just finished copulating and began to slither away from each other in shame before I came out to snap a picture.  I'm pretty sure the other one thinks he's spider-man.

In this one, if you look really close, you can see BABIES!  Not the big fat ass in the bottom right corner, I just got him in the shot for reference.  There's like 5 baby snails total.  I'd adopt one but I'm pretty sure Olive would just eat it.  Plus when they get older, they don't look as cute.  They're just slugs with shells. 

There's like 50 more snails on the lawn.  Maybe they're having an old fashioned tent revival.  Except in snail world its bring your own tent.

  1. You shoud still adopt some into a tank with fish! That is the life of the domestic snail.
