As it was raining, many snails were everywhere. In Slovenia we call them "mali vrtni polž" which means "small garden snail" and the big one we simply call "big garden snail". Both species are often found near vegetable gardens and are very common in Slovenia. The scene was quite comic, it looks like one of them just missed its ride on a big and "fast" Helix pomatia.
On a big rock in the middle of a meadow, high grass near gardens.
On the photo there are 2 Cepaea hortensis and one bigger Helix pomatia.
