Monsoon is here and so it is very common to find this creepy crawler with a shell at its back in your garden.🏡 So, let’s talk about this today.

Snails do not change shells when they grow up instead, the shell🐌 grows along with them. The size of the shell of a snail reflects its age. Snails have no backbone.

When moving, snails leave behind a trail of mucus (the slimy substance). This mucus acts as a lubricant to reduce friction against the surface where they pass.😮

The majority of snails are herbivores which means they eat vegetation such as leaves,🍃 stems and flowers.

In English, the expression “a snail’s pace” is a term used to describe a slow, inefficient process.🧐

Fun Facts

👉 When they feel threatened, they usually retreat into their shell to protect themselves.

👉 Common garden snails have a top speed of 45meter per hour. No wonder, they are considered to be the slowest creature on earth.🤷‍♂

👉 The giant African land snail grows to about 38 cm (15 inches) and weigh 1 kg.😱
