This guy may not look that adventuresome just oozing across the sidewalk, but with his cracked, peeling, and dented shell, he (or she?) must have been around the block a few times.
I’m not sure I realized before that snails have four little antennae out front … check out the two little ones below.
Anyway, beaten up or not, it’s still a saucy little snail. I’m pretty sure it’s wiggling its butt at me as it (slowly) exits the scene.
Then there’s this specimen, a cycloptic snail who’s gotten himself into a rather awkward looking spot on top of a drainage grate …
… and lost an eye and part of one antenna sometime in the past.
This one cannot properly be said to be on an adventure, since this is probably just its normal everyday business of dining, but it still looks pretty impressive. Are snails much less dense than they look, or is that a really sturdy leaf?
