Tough ol' fella, too experienced - or hot - to withdraw all the way into its shell to ease the ID. I put it back into a shady damp spot under the trees.

Description:

There was no way I could get this friendly little fellow to stay in his shell to give a decent view of his aperture. I blew on him, even whacked him sternly with a blade of grass - all he did was withdraw his tentacles for a second in wounded affront, then re-emerge like a happy puppy!
Approx 15 mm long.

Description:

Shell length 160mm.
Feasting on a fermenting lychee. It ate half the fruit and retired to a shady spot.
There were about 10 Woodlice on its mantle and lip. The snail didn't appear bothered by them and I couldn't make out what the isopods were up to.
