Yes,i like snails and slugs,and not the kind that appear on restaurantmenus called escargots, but the ones that live in the garden leaving slimy trails.Ok,call me weird if you like but i really love the little creepers,i rather use snailmail than email and the Snailwatcher by Patricia Highsmith is one of my favourite stories. This site contains three sub-sites:the landsnails site,the freshwatersnails site and the slugs site. Each part is designed so that it can be viewed as a separate site.Because of that you might run into information you found earlier on another part of the site.

See my weblog here:The Snailwatchers musings
Latest additions & news:I've designed a new homepage which can be found here.See if you like it.

There are over 40 pages with snail species.Because many of you might only know an English name,i've made a list with the English names(if available) of snailspecies and on which page you can find them.Click here to go there.
