Snails very much adored by photographers and children, maybe because they get to carry their homes around on their backs. Sadly many snails are stepped on, which is most commonly due to the fact that they are hard to see. Luckily for these Snails below, artists have started to Pimp out their shells by painting on them.

To help save these snails, caring people have decided to paint their shells. Having beautifully colored shells make them harder to miss when they’re crawling around. These people below have used non-toxic paint only and have tried not to scare the snails too much when applying the paint.

These 17 Snails with Pimped Out Artwork On Their Shells To Prevent Snails From Getting Stepped On are very cute and the artists come up with all sorts of designs!

Most animals try to avoid bright colors, as they signal danger and mean that the animal may be poisonous, so the paintjob may even protect them from other creatures.
