I spoke to a snail the other day.  It was quite facinating.   We were about to leave and there was a snail on the side of my car.  My husband surmised that to get where she was she had to have gone up the wheel and across the axle and then back to the body of the car. She was cruising along and, obviously, we didn't want to drive with her on the car so I decided to give it a shot.

At first she said she thought she might find food there, which I told her she wouldn't, but mostly she said she was just crusing and that it was all quite interesting. I asked her if she would like to be on a tree or on the ground and she said she thought a tree would be ok.

I went on to explain to her what it was she was on and how it was going to be moving soon and that I would be taking her off.  It was amazing!  The minute I told her that, she took a left turn and started heading down! At one point I grabbed her shell several times and she didn't even flinch.  No retreating or anything.  It's as if she wasn't afraid at all.  

I kept speaking with her and she told me that she wanted to get down by herself.  I told her I couldn't let her do that because I didn't want to lose her in the wheel area.  She boogied on down to the bottom of the car at which point I took some cardboard and put it in front of her.  She climed right onto it and I took her over and put her on the Palm tree next door.  

She just climbed right off and seemed very happy.  As I was leaving I asked her what she'd like to be called.  She said "Gertrude."  

Facinating experience.  I wish stuff like that could be validated.   But having her make that left turn was pretty good validation for me. :-)

Hi Cheryl.

If you're interested, I believe Penelope Smith's first book has a chapter on talking to insects.  I really liked her book, it was a very easy read with lots of great info,  but I'd still recommend Marta's first. (Maybe just because I read Marta's first. ;-) )
