Patara, Fethiye and the Habits of Snails!

When walking round the archaeological site at Patara, we noticed something in the trees and foliage around us…..

We all pondered a while….was it because the ground was too hot for the snail’s only foot? The sand at Patara beach was certainly too hot for our feet! Anyway, here’s some more photos…..

They were even on branches lying just above the ground!

They were everywhere!

They were everywhere!

And so densely packed together!
