When on a 3 and a half hour trail to Rajmachi, the green leaves partially eaten by some great number made us curious. Looking keenly, the leaf eating being was spotted — a garden snail [scientifically known as Helix aspersa]. It was shining like bronze. It was not a wet brown shine like of any normal garden snail. The hard spiral shell of the snail was seemingly made of bronze. Well, it may be some other species then!
