It's interesting to learn why certain people care about certain things. Why do American's love football? Why do Italians love food? We tend to love and care about the things our families loved and cared about. The best thing that I have learned about kids is that they love everyone and everything unconditionally. Never before would you ever catch me thinking twice about a snail, but ever since my kids started caring about our new found friend "Buddy" none of us can seem to get him off our minds. We love him, we've learned how to take care of him, and now I have more pictures him on my phone than I do my own family. (shh. no one needs to know that.)
Turns out, Buddy's favorite food is apple rinds. After reading lots about them, we learned that snails have a very healthy diet. They eat spinach, leaves, apples, and potatoes.
I wonder what kinds of things snails care about?
