Snail, Common - underside




Snail, Common - underside - September - Haworth


Snail, Common - underside

Slugs and snails are molluscs.

They have no legs and are not segmented. You can see in the picture that snails use a wave of muscle contractions which ripples along their body from head to tail in order for them to move.

The slime is a form of glue allowing them to climb by "sticking" to surfaces.
