Rarely seen Snail

#1

Post by Moriati » February 8th, 2019, 9:43 pm

Just to complement an earlier post of mine regarding the rarely seen slug, here is a rarely seen snail. These are supposedly quite common in London and the South but due to their largely nocturnal habit and their reluctance to move except in rainy spells. They have only come to my attention during the past 3 years, and then mostly in the Nature Reserve, probably due to the seasonal springs keeping the ground damp. The snail has the odd common name of Strawberry Snail (Trochulus strolatus).

After trawling though my archives, I've found another photo for your viewing pleasure (or not). :lol:

an interesting find , and not one i can recall seeing before either,
we get lots of the common or garden variety of snails in the garden,
and i see lots of the Banded snail (which, as kids, we used to call French Snails) out in the woods etc
but thats about it with snails for me i'm afraid :(
