Inconspicuous he is most certainly not, although by his slimy self he is all but invisible against the black, wet tarmac, lest you bring your nose almost down to his level, the spiral shell on his back is a flashing beacon of colour, a bright pebble inching its way forward, seemingly all by itself. It ought to come with a warning label: “May attract the attention of photographers!”

How do you decide whether it’s a he or a she anyway?
