Cantareus aspersus

Cantareus aspersus

So I know snails can be horrible pests if you’ve got a garden, but this slimy little guy was innocently munching weeds when I found him/her, and he/she has a rather pretty shell.

*I love that the ‘he/she’ pronoun fits so perfectly here, as the common garden snail is a simultaneous hermaphrodite – a proper she/he ha ha.
