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.🧐
👉 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.😱
