The Snail is considered to be one of the smallest and slowest moving creatures in the world. There are many species of them and some live on land and others live in water. They have a body that can move inside of their shell.
The Snail can slow down its metabolism to help it survive the cold. They can also do this when they are having a hard time finding food. The hard shell allows it to stay warm and to be well protected from predators. They don’t consume much food but it can take them a great deal of time and energy to move from one place to the next to find food.
