Snails in the Desert

Remember yesterday’s photo of the monsoon rains?

Those rains are the reasons for the following photos, along with liberal garden watering via hose.

It’s a regular snail festival here every evening!


  1. Wow! Those are a lot bigger than our usual Florida snails. I love the colors in their shells. Will you collect some empty ones for jewelry making?

    • I hadn’t thought about saving the shells, but that is a great idea! I am looking at the snails with a whole new perspective! Thanks, Carol!

  2. Hmm – be difficult to piece the shells back together after they are squished…

  3. Interesting how the cuteness factor drops from snail to slug.
