Our photo of the day comes from the rainforest of Ecuador. Snails comes in all shapes and sizes, as evidenced by this super slick specimen photographed by Andreas Kay. We love the flat shell ... and the sweet curiosity implied as it appears to peers over the edge of a leaf. Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day?
