I was never a nature kid. Caterpillars, worms, beetles, if it was outside, I wasn't interested. For some reason, though, I did find snails fascinating.
Something about the swirl of their shells just spoke to me, I guess. Even now, I have as many snails as fish in my home aquarium.
Still, my natural indoor girl-ness always found their sliminess to be a bit off-putting.
