We see snails almost daily here--the rainy season will end in a few more months and when it does we won't see them as often.

Paul, and then you seal your front door and go hibernating? ;-)

Mary Ann, this snail is still hibernating. It's a Helix pomatia, during estivation or hibernation this species creates a calcareous epiphragm in order to seal the opening of the shell (says wikipedia). Life span is up to 20 years. Amazing.

Me, yes, indeed.
