Wonderfully weird and lovely execution. I guess some of them have semi-detached shells.

Love the snails (and the plaid shell)!! They have great character and are so endearing. :) I also love the idea of detachable legs -- snails could really use some legs like those wonderful striped ones. Lovely illustration!!!
