Land snail ho!



This terrestrial, shell-backed crawler was making its way down one of the unpaved paths of the Ramanessin section of Holmdel Park.

Like a sleek, gray muscle, it pulled itself through the grass & weeds with apparent aplomb.

    Great Images, would you be ok with me sharing it on my blog. It’s a snail blog 🙂 I would of course credit you and link your page. Let me know, I look forward to hearing back from you 🙂

    Do you by chance know any information on the what type of snail it is? and the location (doesn’t have to be exact, whatever you feel comfortable with). Thank you again!

    • Unfortunately, I don’t know much about snails. I tried to research this one a bit, but didn’t come up with much. Maybe a Grove snail (Cepaea nemoralis)? Just guessing, really. About all I know for sure is where and when the picture was taken (Holmdel Park, Holmdel, NJ; May 19, 2016). Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
