WOAH! Snails can heal themselves if their shell breaks!
2 summers ago I heard this awful *-CRUUNCH-* I was gardening and I accidentally stepped on a snail. I felt so bad that I took her/him inside and fed her lots of yummy veggie scraps while she healed from the accident. I made this .gif when she stopped resting and the shell started growing back in.
I didn’t know that you have to take the broken bits off… but she healed fine with them left on. :]
She is such an active, eye-whirling snail! I wanted to keep her as a pet/friend, but I realized she’d be much happier outside so I let her go after making sure she was healed.
This is the back. I sent it to a friend of mine who donated the dead pens/highlighters/markers to me.
I had “Little Bunny Foo Foo” by Kimya Dawson stuck in my head while I was making this piece. Naturally, that is where the title & image came from.
I made this of out of donated highlighters, dead pens, markers and other mystical things after getting a bunch of friends to send them to me instead of throwing them away! In return, I promised them A.R.T.T.
So there it is. My letter to Camille and the picture!
& How could I not share with you the awesome song that inspired it all!??
**this isn’t the official music video but it is so strange and delicious! [WHY IS THE SUN….??]
