Nibbled by a snail

Went out in the field with students today. We're surveying habitats for land snails and we happened to find a location with lots of large Neohelix albolabris. I picked one up and it started rasping my fingertip with its radula. So that's what it's like to be nibbled by a snail...

  1. An Eobania vermiculata did the same thing to me recently. I had woken it from its summer sleep & it was apparently very hungry.
