The Snail - and all it entails
BY SONIA CHOW
@ VOL 55
ON FEB 09, 2016
PechaKucha Hong Kong's Sonia Chow wants to step away from work and be seduced by the mundane and the unexpected things in life. Her PechaKucha is about snails, the enemy of gardens everywhere.
She found some snails in her newly planted garden that she decided to keep in her home. Sonia gives us a lecture in basic snail care, what not to do and how to keep your snails alive and well.
For instance, Chows PechaKucha informs us that snails are hermaphrodites. Both partners get pregnant, and their act of love lasts about 15 hours. This piece of information came across Chow as she found herself with tons of new snail babies.
