Holy crap. It's almost as cute as kittens.

Snails are my new number 2.

You gotta love that look around, as if he's thinking "Any other options around here? Nope. Ok, eeeeearrrgh!"

I'm usually phobic about snails (and their homeless cousins, slugs), but this was safely confined to the internets so I could appreciate the snaily tenacity.

there is a bridge a few inches over... duh! oh well, it is cute

Amiee: Snails aren't bugs!

Ant
 |  Dec 31, 2005 at 03:50 PM

Snails aren't bugs? I know they aren't insects,but I think most people consider them bugs. Bugs isn't exactly a scientific species, just layperson's term.

Anyway, this little guy makes me admire snails' determination. Now I feel even guiltier about accidentally stepping on a few snails in my life.

I keep coming back to this one. This little guy(?) isn't just cute, he also speaks to us about the little snail-sized dramas that go on around us all the time, and about the courage of all the little snail-sized creatures who live those dramas. He(?) speaks to us about how we're all one big family of living creatures, an' stuff.

...Or then again, maybe it's just a cute snail. Either way, thanks.

A snail is a gastropod. His stomach is his foot. Just like me!
Also, they are icky, not cute in any way.

Louis

Go Go Gadget Gastropod!

Snails are brave and strong, but have an unfortunate weakness for beer.

Actual dictionary definitions of bug:
1 (the one in more common usage): an insect or other creeping or crawling invertebrate animal (as a spider) —not used technically
2: any of the order Hemiptera and especially of its suborder Heteroptera of insects that have sucking mouthparts, forewings thickened at the base, and that lack a pupal stage between the immature stages and the adult called also TRUE BUG

So "bug" is actually MORE specific than "insect."

Also: snails are TOO cute! *hugs the snail, then washes her hands*

I never thought snails could be cute. I may have to think twice before crushing them.

Nah

I was actually making out behind this place when I noticed two snails getting it on. It was at night and I didnt have a camera.

Snails are so cute, with their little eye stalks and all! I'm glad you include them on the site.

Interesting comments about cute or ?. I think there must be some category of "little ones acting courageously" that could be tapped here.

Bens
 |  Jan 01, 2006 at 10:50 PM

He snailed that one.

How long did it take the snail to do that? I'm picturing you sitting there for quite a while, lol. I confess: they are cute, and I didn't really know until your pics.

Jen
 |  Jan 02, 2006 at 08:32 PM

thank you for pointing out the cuteness of snails. I have always had a fondness for them, and certainly nudibranchs are among the most beautiful of creatures.

snails are slimey. Slimey is a violation of the rules of cutness (unless you are a frog)

SJ
 |  Jan 10, 2006 at 07:02 AM

Love these photos. The snail is way cute and the colors are great. this could be a great series of framed photos on a wall.

Well, I still don't know how cute this snail is, though the dictionary definition seems to think so. Mostly.

Cute or not, this has to be one of the coolest photo sequences on the web, especially with Meg's captions. Go go gastropod!

Theo
 |  Feb 07, 2006 at 08:30 PM

How did he manage to do this...surprisingly cute for something I am usually trying to get out of my garden. Maybe I will have to let them eat my basil now...

sam
 |  Feb 10, 2006 at 09:49 PM

This is hilarious, one of my favorites : )

Sarah
 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 02:15 PM

Ugh. Meg, WTF are you thinking?! this is not cute- its disgusting!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:58 PM
