Simply beautiful. This looks like something right out of one of my daughter's text books for science. Oh by the way she loves this snail. She took one look at your snail and told me that mine was fake. he he he he he, She said your snail is what a true snail is surpose to look like. Kids, they are so darn truthful. Have a wonderful day.
