I'm trying to save a snail
I found this poor snail this morning on the patio wall. His shell was crushed and most of it had been lost. Yet his body seemed intact. He was moving. I'm guessing he met with his misfortune on the ground and had crawled up the wall, about 18 inches.
I fixed up a container with moist leaf litter, a bit of broken flower pot to hide under, and some fruit and flowers to eat. Oh, I put another snail in there too, so he wouldn't be alone.
Both snails are up at the top of the container right now, right on the underside of the lid. The damaged one is still alive, although he doesn't seem to be doing very well.
