Slugs and Snails

Parent Category: Mollusks

A carnivore snail will eat meat or eat other snails and a herbivore snail will not eat meat and will only eat vegetables.
It is a good example of an exoskeleton.

A Mollusk has an outer shell, siphons, that bring water in and out of there bodies so that they can get oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Hope that helped
Not at all. Slugs, along with snails, form the class Gastropoda,  which belongs to the Mollusca grouping. Molluscs are the second  biggest group of animals, the most prevalent being arthropods.  Mammals are vertebrate animals that are endothermic (with the  exception of the naked mole rat),...

Snails do drink water not very much though. Do not give it to much  or it will die. DO NOT LET IT GET AROUND SALT OR SALTWATER! The  same goes with slugs. Don't let them near salt water when it can be  helped. Don't let them near salt either. If you are ever having  problems with growing things...
Invertebrate. No spine or internal bone structure.
snails are not female or male they are hermaphroditesSee image link below.   See differences at applesnail.net -> anatomy -> reproductive system section.   Some few species of snails are bisexual, being both masculine and feminine.
noyes but there so small you cant see them!~
Terrestrial slugs move using their muscular foot. By creating an undulating wave-like motion along the length of the foot, a snail is able to push against a surface and propel its body forward, albeit slowly. At top speed slugs cover a mere 6 inches per minute.
No, they usually do not.

I do not know two, but I do know one off the back of my hand. It is true that a snail can sleep up to three years, without food or nutrients. I think snails can absorb water through their skin, like worms. But I am not COMPLETELY positive.
  What is a snails life cycle
How do snails reproduce?Snails will be able to reproduce differently than almost any other type of creature because of their species and their make-up. This begins with the build that all snails have. Snails are considered to be hermaphrodites. This means that every snail will have both male and...
No species of snail is able to 'leave' its shell. The shell is connected to the snail like a permanent tooth. If it were to leave its shell it would die. so unfortunately the snail probably died, or was eaten by a predator.
immediately put it into water
A limpit lives in the ocean, clinging on for dear life on a rock. They feed of nutrients floating around in the water, and don't move around a lot. Although when the tide is in, they can move around using their 'Foot'.
Slugs are herbivores. They eat plant materials, not meat. The slug is about the size of your finger so how could it eat meat? Think about it. They would be the ones getting chewed up, not the other orginasm.

Sea snails feed on bits of plants, animals, and other organisms in  the water. They also scrape algae or crust-like animals off rocks  and on the ocean bottom. Sea snails are then eaten by octopi, tuna,  mackerals, bigger snails and other large fish. These fish are then  eaten by larger animals...

Snails can live in the desert and ditches, also they can live on the mountains and marshlands. They are usually found in damp areas, like underneath stones and behind plantpots.

  I say its the snail.  
Snails have what is called a nerve cluster; not complex enough and doesn't have divided structures, yet controls the functions of the snail's body. This cluster of is formed from ganglion, which is naught but a mass of nerve cells.

Slugs are hermaphrodites. This means that every slug is both male and female.

  == Answer ==   Snails "breathe" through their skin and through an opening called the pneumostome visible on the right side of their bodies.
  There is no parental care amongst snails. As soon as the eggs are laid the baby snails are on there own. Its really no big deal.
Yes they do. Shell give protection to the snails. Not to mention that the shells hold the snail's intestines, heart, and other vital organs.
A snail is a gastropod and a mollusk.
In one episode it showed an album of Gary and his owner. Gary looked like a baby snail and his owner looked young. So I would say Gary is middle aged.

Erm, it's quite confusing. Some says the snail is exoskeleton but some says it is hydrostatic skeleton. Maybe both can be the answer.
Taxis. Taxis is movement toward or away from a specific stimulas. When and isopod moves toward moisture, it is taxis

Yes Snails can eat each other, especially in captivity if there are smaller snails and they aren't fed a varied diet with all the nutrients they need.
One generally associates snails with the French.
  Yes and No, depending on what type of snail it is.
  You can get them wet with a small mist of water but if yo give them water like in a water dish they will drown!
No. Instead of having a backbone, they have an outer shell. Therefore they are invertebrates.
