Even Snails Are Conservationists

It's amazing what you can learn when you waste an incredible amount of time surfing the Net. Like the fact that snails conserve energy by re-using the mucus trails they travel on. Apparently, even barely sentient mollusks know what people like Ann Coulter and other right-wingers can't grasp: energy efficiency just makes sense.

Of course, I wish snails would be energy-efficient in someone else's garden...



  1. I agree, they can find someplace else to be all efficient and the end of a fish hook or something!

  2. You may be the only gardener who can find good in snails,lol. they are maybe born wise, whereas humans like to get it all wrong first before trying to get it right.Environmentally..
