Adventures in Ethics and Science

We had another early-morning downpour (today at about 3 AM).

Thus, the half-hour of gastropod hunting was productive.

The damp weather definitely seemed to make the slugs and snails feel more comfortable being out and about (rather than hunkered down wherever it is they hunker down on the dry mornings). And, like yesterday, the main gastropod action seemed to be on the periphery, where our yard borders with the neighboring yards.

This does make me consider getting enough copper tape, as per JohnV’s suggestion, to fortify our border. I just need first to measure how great a length I’ll need.

Dampness notwithstanding, there were fewer gastropods to pick today than yesterday.

Today’s take: 56 slugs and 36 snails.
