Meet the Terrestrial Snails
Terrestrial snails, also known as land snails, are a group of land-dwelling gastropods that have the ability to breathe air.

What Does a Snail's Shell Do?
A snail's shell serves to protect its internal organs, prevent water loss, provide shelter from cold, and protect the snail from predators.

What is the Structure of a Snail's Shell?
The shell of a snail consists of three layers, the hypostracum, the ostracum and the periostracum.

How Do Snails Move?
Terrestrial snails move by creating an undulating wave-like motion along the length of the foot that propels its body forward, albeit slowly.

Peculiarities of Snail Anatomy
Snails have a single, often spirally coiled shell (univalve), they undergo a developmental process called torsion, and they possess a mantle and a muscular foot used for locomotion.

Sorting Snails and Slugs
Terrestrial snails are classified in the same taxonomic group as terrestrial slugs because they share many similarities.

How Are Snails Classified?
Snails are invertebrates, which means they lack a backbone. They belong to a large and highly diverse group of invertebrates known as the mollusks (Mollusca).

Terrestrial Snail Life Cycle and Development
Snails start life as an egg buried in a nest a few centimeters below the surface of the ground.

Snail Senses
Terrestrial snails have primitive eyes (referred to as eyespots) that are located on the tips of their upper, longer pair of tentacles.

The Evolution of Snails
The earliest known snails were similar in structure to limpets. They lived in shallow sea water and fed on algae and they had a pair of gills.

Estivation in Snails
Snails are usually active in the summer, but if it gets too warm or too dry for them, they enter a period of inactivity known as estivation.

What Do Snails Eat?
Terrestrial snails are herbivorous. They feed on plant material (such as leaves, stems, and soft bark), fruits, and algae.

Why Do Snails Need Calcium?
Snails need calcium to build their shells. Snails obtain calcium from a variety of sources such as dirt and rocks.

What Habitat Do Snails Prefer?
Snails first evolved in marine habitats and later expanded into freshwater and terrestrial habitats. Terrestrial snails live in moist, shady environments such as forests and gardens.

Animals & Wildlife

Hibernation in Snails
In late fall when temperatures drop, snails go into hibernation. They dig a small hole in the ground or find a warm patch, buried in a pile of leaf litter.

Snail Reproduction
Most terrestrial snails are hermaphroditic which means that each individual possesses both male and female reproductive organs.

How Large Do Snails Grow?
Snails grow to a variety of different sizes depending on the species and individual.

The Vulnerability of Snails
Snails are small and slow. They have few defenses.
