Facts about Snails

Land Snails refer to mollusks with coiled shells that live on land.

There are also sea snails and freshwater snails.

Land snails can be found in a wide range of habitats including gardens, deserts, mountains, woodlands and many others.

Land snails are herbivores and eat the plants common in their habitat.

Land snails breathe air using lungs and they develop a shell which grows as the snail grows with a substance secreted by the snail made of calcium carbonate.

Some snails hibernate during winter periods.

All land snails are hermaphrodites, producing both spermatozoa and ova.
