:whistle1: Diddle-iddle-iddle-um, With the extra leg.... :whistle1:

Nope, no extra legs, but definately a few missing.... There might be a few AWOL screws from this board too, but I don't think we are counting! :rofl:

Great snail! :sn: Very unusual shell! :snaily:

The funny "painted bug" is a house carpet bug. As ever, VERY impressed - might have to send your snail to mum, she'd love that.

You tend to find that kind in sandy areas - loads of shells to be found in Theddlethorpe.
