Nice and wet

After a very hot week we had some serious rain yesterday night, which seems to have made these guys very happy:



But it is not an invasion like this one last year (see here).

I read today that the snail Lymnaea makes decisions by using only two types of neuron: one deciding whether the snail is hungry, and the other deciding whether there is food in the vicinity. I have to admit that I seem to turn into a Lymnaea too if I am kept hungry long enough.

Whenever I see snails I remember that we seem to have been somewhat obsessed with them a while ago and we still don't know why (see here).

And of course, I am wary of bunnies (see here).
