Carpe Diem “Little Creatures” #15, Buson’s “Mud-Snails

The Tanishi “mud-snails” are about 1 inch long.  They out compete, native snails, mussels, and clams in America and Canadian because they eat literally anything.


Not familiar with these snails, i just wrote about the tiny ones in my garden.

every dawn and dusk
snails congregate


silver snail trails
sparkle in the dirt
