Description:

On collecting the mole's corpse in the morning gloom, I noticed two small grey things protruding from the open mouth. I thought they were maggots, but one fell off, so I picked it up to carry inside for photographing. And realised immediately it was no maggot, but a tiny Hunter Snail.
Sadly, I didn't get any shots in situ and by the time the camera was ready, the remaining snail, disturbed, had left the mouth and was hot-footing hirself off to safety.
