    Well, if they eat all your colorful crotons, you will still have a lot of color in the garden.

    Dean, is that thing for real? If it is, any idea what type of snail it is and what part of the world it comes from, overall size, etc? Is it on your property?

    Sorry Tim - I won't tell anyone. :)

    MooseMan - should I post it on PalmTalk and see if I can catch anyone there?

    Yes - and push the issue that it only eats crotons. It absorbs the sap that brings out its colors as a camoflage while eating the leaves. Gotta mention it is very rare - should draw attention. I knew it was a hoax - somebody expended some time photo shopping that image.
