Trail Buddy

This is a Powelliphanta, commonly known as an Amber Snail and common around my local morning ride. They are not Kauri Snails (Paryphanta), which are more golden in colour.

The shell is about the size of an Oreo cookie in diameter, though a lot thicker and can be larger... overall I think they are pretty cool companions to have on a morning ride, though I have to be mindful of their presence, as they are always across the trail.
