Unfortunately, it was too dark to take an image when he got down to the ground.

Snail deserves its own little hall of fame, as it took several hours to go from the top of the house navigate over rough terrain down to the ground.

Yeah but between snails and snakes, the second choice is more accepted as food worldwide.
