Snails after the rain

When we got to the office yesterday there were hundreds of snails all over the place. Ange and I took tons of them off the pavement and put them back under the plants to save them from being stepped on or run over. Sadly, I accidentally squished a few myself. The tiny ones were really hard to see.

Wall crawler?
The snails were trying to get to high ground after the heavy rains from the night before, but were putting themselves in danger to do it. I don't know why they didn't just climb the bushes instead. They sure were cute though. I was tempted to take some home to put in the garden, but I didn't want to upset the worms I have there.
