I’m calling March 13th of this year Snail Day at McKinney Falls State Park because I saw a fair number of snails there that had left the ground and climbed up on various plants. I found this inch-long snail adhering to a mustang grape vine, Vitis mustangensis. Don’t you like the way the twisting tendril casts its shadow on the shell?
