I decided to take a walk during my morning break at work and happened to spy a little snail in the road. Actually, it wasn't really little because it was the largest snail I had ever seen. It had a shell almost an inch tall and with its head sticking out, it was almost two inches big.
Now I don't know very much about snails but I didn't think it belonged in the middle of a road where cars and trucks pass by all day. So I gently took a leaf from the grassy area alongside the road and helped the little snail move off to a wet grassy area. I hope the cute little thing has a better chance at growing bigger there - better than getting crushed by an unsuspecting vehicle!
