Escargot (Snails)

There once was a snail who loved to watch the NASCAR races.  He decided to follow his dream to become a NASCAR driver.  His first stop en route to achieving his dream was the car detailing shop.  The receptionist asked the snail what he needed done in terms of detail work.  The snail replied, “I would like your staff to paint a giant “S” on my shell.”  The receptionist asked “Why?” and the snail replied, “Because, when I go to the races, I would like everyone to say, ‘Hey look at that “S” car go! (escargot)’:)

Slug or Snail Tracks (Algonquin Park, February 2015)

Snails and slugs leave this track on birch bark. This trail is left by the snail’s radula (or rasping tongue). Toothlets on this tongue rasp particles of algae growing on the tree bark and move them to the rear into the snail’s gullet.  *This was an animal trail that perplexed me on my Cybertracker Track and Sign Evaluation.
