I came across a few small snails while gardening last week Wednesday, I’m not sure of the specie to which they belong. I couldn’t kill them. Jamaican snailsAt first I thought they were “baby” snails until I saw an even smaller-sized snail fused unto another snail. They were hidden in the stems of our pepper mint plant.

I think it could be a baby snail detaching from the parent snail. Jamaican snailsJamaican snailsSee some more photos in the gallery below (click for slideshow).
