Poll: Are Creepy Crawlies Cute?

I’ll draw the line at Spiders (except for the ones who do YMCA)- but take a look at these fellows. Sender-Inner Anne S. says, “Finally, there’s proof! Baby snails are cute too! (And start out really really really tiny. It’s surprising they survive at all with this teeny weeny size and their rather obvious lack of speed.”)

What do you think? Cute, or Creepy? Take the Poll!

Snail Xing

SAM_0041“I took this photo at 6am while on vacation in Iowa. I was enjoying my morning walk and noticed this snail crossing the paved road. He is only about the size of the end of a pinky finger. No photo editing has been done, this is straight from the camera!” -Kimberly O.

“Hi, Here is a picture of some snails socialising* on a tree stump this morning in my garden in Thornton Heath aka ‘poor man’s Croydon.’ You may have heard of it on Crimewatch. [Nope. -Ed.]
Many thanks, Andy A.” [*British spelling alert! -Ed.]

Chilton The Snalio!

“Chilton the baby Zebra Nerite Snail has what is probably the teensiest, cutest, spaghetti-o mouth that I’ve ever seen. He lives in a tank with Hannibal The Betta, who, despite his name, is not interested in eating him. Only occasional poking and kissing.” -Corinne S.
