Yay! Glad he's alive.

Yep, dead snails are seriously the worst thing I have EVER smelt...nothing compares with that stench. I was washing my hands under scalding water with scented soap every five minutes for the next day, crying in desperation because I couldn't get the stink off. Seriously, don't touch them. If you need to put your hands in dead-snail water, use gloves. Then burn them.

Very glad he's alive, and now you have to give him an epic name like Lazarus!! *nodnodnod*

what kind is he?

sometimes they don't move for a while. I thought mine was dead too but nope. Besides the smell, I have been told the trapdoor will be open and the dead snail will hang out of it?
