I suppose I failed to mention that I set up a terrarium.

I was inspired by the book "Sound of a Wild Snail Eating" lent to me by a friend.

Here is the set up with the Allogona townsendiana , Oregon Landsnail.  These are common on the grounds where I work.  You also see them frequently in our native woods.

A week ago I first spotted little snail-ettes, about 25 when I last counted.

Today one posed for pictures while eating on a snap pea.  This one has a little shell damage so I will have to keep an eye on it. 

All will return to the wild when they are bigger.
