Land Snails


These were found at Vythiri resorts, Wayanad, Kerala.
Land snails fully grown ones, almost palm size, trudging along leaving behind a silvery trail. The thorough city-bred kids picnicking there crowded around the snail in total shock and disbelief, as if they were watching a dinosaur!

I have never seen such colourful snails, either. They would cheer up the garden on a dull, damp morning.

Wonderful colours. They are much bigger than the biggest of our snails. They could eat their way through a small garden in no time!
