    A family of snails making their way across the frozen landscape, in search of flint.

    They seem to be attracted to brightly colored things, such as these signs entering my property.

    I gently picked one up, and it latched onto my hand, so I hit it with a rock !

    Pretty little fellar, apparently he can be quite a fire breather. Haven't hit him with a rock yet, might this summer though!

    I think there needs to be a thread about fire-breathing snails, all species! I consider mine functional jewelry, needing to personally put the function with the jewelry still.

    Great work, both you guys!
