Heidi... Another Snail!!!

PeeWee is doing very well, even though I still don't feel like I know what I'm doing. We've had PeeWee since last Monday, so I'm please with that. We were wanting to find another snail so we could possibly have baby snails. I read that you can see their little heart beats!

Well, two days ago - during daylight! - I saw a snail's shell lying near where we found the first one. The snail was not "out", so I was hoping he was alive. I'd been told that you can run warm, not hot!, water over them to wake them up, so we gave it a try. It took over a minute, but it worked! We were so excited. Alexandra named him/her Heidi (actually she says Hidey, because it likes to hide).
We've ordered a book from the library called Snailology that is supposed to teach us more about taking care of the snails. I'm still worried that we're going to accidentally kill them!
