Snail confusion

The snails around my house and yard seem unusually active for this time of year. This one, clinging to my patio wall, was awake in the heat of the day, looking sort of confused. Maybe the humidity had something to do with it.




I misted him lightly with water, and he retreated somewhat, but didn't go all the way into his shell. Later in the evening we had an unusual summer rainstorm that woke him up again, and this time he slithered down from the wall and off to his next adventure.
