Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Racing Snails

I found the most adorable little snails gliding down the door to the Prairie Ridge offices a few weekends ago!  They looked like they were racing to the bottom:

The snail on the right made it to the bottom first, though only after a massive blowout collision between the two of them.  :)

  1. This is so cute! I remember, when we were kids, my brother and I used to mark their shells with magic markers and we would play to be scientists, observing their paths on our backyard.

    • I am not much of an early riser either, but this particilar weekend I was meeting a researcher who I’d help set up moth traps with the night before, so I actually got to see them. I was happy I did! Tiny little guys, so boy were they cute!
