June Photo of the Month

Snails are members of the mollusk family, which includes oysters, clams and other shellfish.They feed on the lower leaves of many plants, gliding from one plant to another on a thin layer of mucus. When confronted with adverse weather conditions, snails can seal the entrance to their shell with a mucus sheet and enter a dormant phase that can last for years.
