Found this little chap in the swimming pool while on holiday in Spain. We rescued him and he trundled off into the shrubbery. He was about the size of a £1 coin with two distinctive 'horns' sticking out from the front of his shell on either side of his head. Also very distinctive antennae which ended in three little leaves, almost like a fleur de lys.
