The snails are climbing the walls. It's been raining for a few days now, and I started noticing the snails on the outside walls of my house a couple of days ago. Some of them were a couple of feet off the ground. Now, some of them are higher than I can reach, little gooey snail trails meandering behind them. I am powerfully curious:

  • Why do they do it?
  • What are they looking for?
  • How many days does it take a snail to climb a wall?
  • What will they do when they get to the top? Maybe they are planning to end it all.
