These snails are EVERYWHERE.
And they are HUGE.
It has been raining a lot lately, so these snails and huge earthworms are coming out more frequently then ever. You have to watch where ever you walk, because you most likely will step on one. I've seen many a cracked gooey shell the past few weeks.
I was at school the other day when I passed by some of my 2nd grade girls playing with a snail. They would poke one of its antennae things, and it would shoot into its head. Slowly it would come back out, and the girls would poke it again.
Although I am 23, I had fun poking the antennae as well.
