      Haha- I adore the blue snail. The colour is so strong and fabulous. He's also adorable btw. I find snails rather cute actually, not so much slugs but snails however always seem to be really curious- poking along underneath leaves at their own pace cautiously bumping up against leaves and stems and such- your looks like he's doing just that!

      Kind of reflects life during covid-19.

      Very grateful to all for the kind love

      Thanks Lauren for your fab comment & great observ, yes it's snails over slugs anytime - the slugs are so creepy after it rains esp if you step on one! Yes this guy looks like an inquisitive creeper, and I love that blue also

      Phil thanks so much for your super compliments, because this glass snail is so wide it was hard to get the full body in my tablet photos, the best was the first on a diagonal. Also, the snail is quite the creative creation by Mantorp!

      Thanks BB2 for your intriguing comment, I believe I know what you meant by it (lol!) but let's say because of covid, the world is moving at a 'snail's pace' or too slow for our liking. If we EVER get a vaccine, hope these restrictions will all be a bad memory sometime very soon & we can all come out of our shells :)

      Karen I'm so glad you liked this snail & thank you for the lovely compliments, yes it is bigger than I expected as well in length, most glass snails seem to have taller spirals on back & are taller rather than long, but Mantorp makes really cute colorful animals & they are not run of the mill shapes so always a lucky find

      Thank you apostata for the super comment & love, glad you like this Mantorp snail. Also thanks for alerting me about the advertisement I have removed it, don't know why people put those on a collector website

      Many thanks Bruce & LovelyPat for the very kind love & support it is always so appreciated
