Monday Night Snails Plan their Escape

Starting to work on my Venice photos.

Here's one from the square around the corner from our B&B, where there was a wonderful, small fish market. The lovingly laid out table (complete with red awning) featured squid, octopus, all kinds of fish (filleted) and an assortment of shellfish, too. In front of the table was this snail tank. As you may know, snails and salt don't mix, so I guess the salt on the top of this tank keeps them from escaping. But they were definitely thinking about it, you can tell.

Except for the ones on the bottom. They've just given up all hope, I guess. Or else they are the smart snails.
