On my way home from the church I almost run over the Japanese snail (above photo). Was using my trike to achieve a dual purpose: to exercise and attend the church service. Good thing I noticed it walking so slowly in the middle of the road. I respect the creature's right to use the road and reach the vegetation on the roadside. Do you have such kind of snail in your place?

I have never seen a snail like that here, but I do know turtles walk slow and they sometimes will be in the middle of the road when I drive by. I always try not to hit them. I know a lot of people also try not to hit them in their cars.

I rarely see such snails; maybe people are trying to eradicate it because it is a voracious plant-eater.

We don't see many snails here but I know lots of gardeners who have them and don't like them at all.

It is considered as plant pest.

@acelawrites They are a pest here too. My sister has them in her letter-box and they start eating the mail if she doesn't get there first.

It was nice of you not to crush it. I'm not sure I would even NOTICE a snail in the road. We have snails here but I don't think I've actually SEEN one since I was a child.

Maybe it is common in tropical countries like here.

We have far too many snails (they eat my flowers), but I don't know what sort they are.

At times one can not do but get rid of them because they are voracious plant eaters.

@hereandthere yes, you won't worry riding it because it has three wheels.

I don't see a photo of a snail, it's instead a statue of the Mother Mary.

I uploaded it from my cellphone and made the error of placing another image . I can't recognize which image was that. So now I edited it and there it is now.

Yes, we have this kind of snail here. Usually they will be available after a rain in early morning.

@acelawrites I had seen it now. I think this is most common in the countryside. I used to see this in my granny's house in Pangasinan.
