Snail on a small plant

Snail on Small Plant 2166A

On the prairie in northeast Austin on April 22nd I noticed this snail that had climbed onto a small plant. The most common land snails here are tiny but this one was larger, maybe 3/4 of an inch (19mm). Shortly after finding that snail, I saw that another one of the same type had gotten up on a leaf of an antelope-horns milkweed plant, Asclepias asperula.
