Let's Just Leave PETA Out Of This, K?

We have snails in California. Lots of 'em. I remember this from being a kid and visiting. Didn't quite realize the significance of their population until we moved here.

I actually think they're cute little creatures, but they eat our plants, so we have to keep a close eye on where they're crawling sliming around.

The kids LOVE them. Our snails race each other, make friends, and occasionally get a fresh coat of chalk on their shells to make distinguishing a breeze.  But, really.  Would you want these two in charge of your fate?

Don't say it. I see it.

Just a day in the life, peeps.

Back soon with more visitor recaps.  So many fun pictures to post!

We have enough other things - glad we don't have those too. Love that they are so in to them!

I've recently noticed an increase in the snails. Must be the time of year. Or you could have more because you live way closer to the ocean. If you need more let me know and you can have all our snails too.

That pic of Lainey with her hand is awesome especially with the look on her face. Keeper for sure.

Snails have always creeped me out. They remind me of the scene in The African Queen, where Humphrey Bogart is covered in leeches. I'm sure snails are not that vicious, but they are still creepy.

We don't get a lot of snails around here but when I was a kid I used to love to cover them in salt and watch them dry and die. That's what we did for fun in TN!

I'm so glad you find these things cute. I have to say, they are much better looking than cockroaches! I still think bugs make better cartoons than real live animals/insects/bugs.
