    Love Me, Love My Snail

    Some magical photography, reminding us that, if we care to look for it, we will find beauty and wonder everywhere ...

    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    Absolutely fascinating and very beautiful to behold. I like the second photo - that raspberry looks so tasty to the snail, not just to us....

    I really enjoyed all of these photos! I selected one of them to be my desktop background. I actually had a Giant African Land Snail growing up as a kid. His name was Cubby. He lived to be 9 years old. Unfortunately they are now illegal here, but he was a fascinating pet to have. Here is a picture of Cubby :) Name:  CubbyPic18.jpg

    His shell is a lovely colour. Thank you for showing us. When did they become illegal?

    Re: Love Me, Love My Snail

    I'm not exactly sure. I just remember the breeder contacting my family and I to let us know. She apparently brought hers to a reptile show and some one reported her. She was not aware about them being banned as they were okay to own at one point. They confiscated them from her and they were apparently euthanized. She wanted to warn us because I had taken him to school once for a project and my mother was a teacher at the time and she brought him in to show her primary class. I really wish they could have taken those other snails to a museum or something, but I guess they can reproduce pretty rapidly so they would only end up with more. I really wish they handled it differently as there could have been a much better option. Cubby kinda became my secret pet after that. He didn't do too much but he had quite an appetite! I still have his shell.

    It's very sad that the lady's snails were taken from her and euthanised. I am glad Cubby was your secret pet, and lived out his life incognito after that. He lived to a very good age, I would think. Although I have no idea how long snails live. But nine years old sounds very good.

    Thank you for the lovely new photos, Knight. The snails are so graceful and beautiful.
