We had a "frog choaker" of a rain and a lot of fireworks and loud noise yesterday. 3 inches of rain in about 30 minutes. YIPPEE we shouted as it poured down. The storm blew this ugly dead Queen of The Night bloom down on the ground.

. A snail's mouth is located on the lower area of the head, close to the short tentacles. On the inside of the mouth is a special eating tool, called the radula. This is a muscular structure coated by thousands of tiny teeth. Snails eat by pushing the radula against a leaf or other vegetation and rasping it and scraping away particles.
