They look a bit boring. Have you tried blinging their shells with a bit of purple nail varnish?

They don't do much but they are a big hit with everyone here. . On some levels on a par with a tank full of fish. . The appeal is subjective though I guess. .
Considered some customising but need to make sure it's safe before going down that path ; :wink:

as soon as add some bling was suggested i thought, ringle and the like
not nail varnish. then you have to doublethink and remind yourself its a snail, and it wont take a set of purple bars that idb1 has or and mavic rims.

So when they get to 8 inches will they be classed as downhill, slopestyle or freeride snails?

When they get that big there is a high-risk that one of my kids will wake up with one stuck to her face...
