Fluffy's Return

By Christopher_Malpas
It’s been a while since my last posting, however, time is short at the moment and unfortunately it is not going to improve for a couple of months.

This is a picture of “Fluffy” our pet Giant African Land snail the day he came out of hibernation. The whole family was pleased to see him again.

Sorry about the quality but i had to go out and was in a hurry but he don’t look bad for a 7 year old does he?
