John, my Mystery Snail, the Escape Artist

This is just too funny. I had to post.

John decided that his aquatic environment was no longer suited for him and he wanted to brave the perils of my room instead.


I've had enough of this tank!!


I can make it out of here!!!


Wow this dresser is mighty hard XD

He then proceeded to roll himself right off the dresser onto the hardwood floor!! He then sank into his shell for about an hour. When I figured he'd had enough I plopped him back in the tank, hoping he had learned his lesson.

They can crack their shells doing that. Funny, and yes, it does happen. But it is better if you can prevent it.

He won't learn his lesson. I had one that escaped 3 times and I finally dropped her in the larger tank, that seems to have quelled her desire to go on a "walk about"

That's the same thing I did with mine, I put it in a larger tank. He hasn't tried to escape since
