More snails

Here are three of the six (!) snails we had crossing our walkway the other morning. Wish I knew what they were up to...

Possible reasons:
1)looking for bits of rock, dirt, something on the concrete that provides calcium for building their shells.
This may be part of their food foraging process and you just happen to see them on the sidewalk.
2)getting exercise
3)providing a curiousity for humans

Ha! Clever. :) I love your snail photos, and I really think that middle one is looking for food- in the close up, it looks like his head is stuck between the cracks!

They are fleeing from somebody who gives 4 stars to a love story on meat. Perhaps they fear your French cooking, nez pas?
