Snail on Flickr.
Yesterday, I noticed a snail clinging to a concrete wall in the alley behind my flat. It was still there this morning. I thought it was dead, but after it rained I went out to check on it and it was alive!
At least 24 hours baking on concrete, or being almost frozen when the temperature dropped and the snail just needed to rehydrate.
We put it in someone’s garden. I couldn’t leave it to die there after taking its picture.
