Childhood pets

My college is running an amateur photography competition. Im by no means a photographer but i love taking pictures needless to say i entered. On my way home from work i seen a snail and decided i would photograph him and send that picture in.

Its ironic thats the picture i sent because as a child we werent allowed to have pets so i used to put snails in tins and sneak them into my bedroom and put them in my wardrobe i would play with them everyday and pick up leaves and grass to feed them with.

One day my sister opened my wardrobe and nearly screamed the house down there was about 100 snails in the wardrobe. My parents hit the roof and i cried a river when i was made put them outside.

    I would never have thought of snails as a pet, but I knew of someone who had a descented skunk as a pet, so whatever makes us happy. Nice post.
