Camera Critters



My grandkids are I were wading in the warm shallow water at the edge of Apalachee Bay in the Gulf of Mexico and saw this slow moving snail. My grandson is a big fan of Spongebob Squarepants and decided to name him Gary, in honor Spongebob's pet snail on that cartoon show. To see more fascinating critters from all over the world, visit Camera Critters.

That is a cute story, Lois. You are lucky to have your grandchildren close enough to enjoy.

I think I'd like your grandson a lot...he's interested in things around him and he's creative. So did you take Gary home as a pet?

Lois said...

No we didn't take him home. We picked him up though and inspected him pretty thoroughly before letting him go on his way!

Gary is a handsome critter. I like the way you included some of his habitat in your photo. Very nice!
