Common or garden grub, well garden actually. Nothing exotic, on brick wall,back garden in U.K.

Don't know what it's from, can anyone help ?

Not a quiz as such, I just don't know what it is !

Baby snail perhaps ? Actual size is 4mm !!

Thanks Norm. When I was preparing the second image it struck me how much it looked like a snail, but still wasn't too sure.

Here it is actual size. The house brick is a common sized 8.25"(21cm) x 2.5"(6.3cm)and the 'snail' is 5mm long !! (It's growing).

Hey Steve,

Can't help thinking that they look like some strange creature from Mars! (The red of the brick looks like the arrid landscape on the red planet...)

And for the record it looks like a wee snail to me too....
