Monster, but not from outer space…

I always knew that snails retreated within their shells, and then slowly came out again…but I had never really thought about “how” until I saw this African snail on Saturday, and decided to video it close up….

I must say, it’s incredible to think of eyes (yes, those are the eyes that ‘grow’ out first, the other two are feelers) withdrawing into one’s body and then extending out again….

It does like an alien monster, doesn’t it!

The minute you step into the world of Life Under Foot, everything becomes unrecognizable….
