evidence of a periwinkle


My picture is about a flower design on a rock made by a snail traveling around. There is seaweed around the rock. There is sand on the rock. The rock is gray with sand in the rock holes.


The snail lives in a tidepool in the water. It travels around from rock to rock and in and around seaweed. It blends in with the seaweed so it won't get eaten by the predators. It leaves a trail behind it.


I wonder what it feels like: is it slimy?
