If you watch their movements they take on strange routes. For example instead of moving in a straight line they will complete a circle pattern. It is this type of behavior that has given them a stereotype as not being very intelligent. It isn’t really known why they do this though.
They have the reproductive organs of both males and females which categorizes them as hermaphrodites. However, the myth that they can create offspring on their own is false. They must mate with another and then both of them will have the ability to lay eggs.
Snails don’t see very well so they have to rely upon their good sense of smell to help them find their prey. They also aren’t able to hear.
Snails range in size from 30 centimeters to 15 inches in length.
Snails don’t like the brightness of sunlight which is why you will find them out more on cloudy days. If you keep one in an aquarium you want to make sure that too much sunlight doesn’t filter into the room. This can cause the snail to stop eating and to spend most of its time inside of the shell.
Snails will die if they consume either salt or sugar. Make sure you don’t offer these types of items to them when you see them or when you have one in captivity because their bodies can’t process these items.
The Giant African Land Snail is known to eat more than 500 different types of plants.
Snails are very strong and can lift up to 10 times their own body weight in a vertical position.
It is believed that there are at least 200,000 species of mollusks out there including snails. Many of them haven’t been found and classified yet.
