    1. Thank you! I am sure that I mentioned that there were three, now four, of these snails out and about after our recent rain. The little one was quite “friendly”!
      A Young Pacific Sideband Land Snail. This fellow was inside an upside down wheelbarrow until I turned the wheelbarrow over. It was quite comfortable travelling on my hand or anyone else’s. It was exploring! Canada,Geotagged,Monadenia fidelis,Pacific sideband,Spring
