Rock Snail | 石の牛歩 | 石蝸牛

If you’ve been following me on Twitter then this is the snail I mentioned the other day.

I was taking out the trash for the week then found it in the garden. It doesn’t look that big in this shot but from a distance it looked like a rock. I thought the crows had dropped some of their scavenged bread again ^^;

Liked the look of the texture on its shell so I took a photo of it. Never noticed they had lower tentacles too… Usually we just see their upper ones with the eye at the end!

So, who care’s about 5 Centimetres Per Second when you can watch a snail crawl at 1mm/s? Kidding of course!
