Can a snail's shell grow back if it loses it?
There are different legends, however the snail's pallium should produce the shell continuously.
YES if your snails shell is cracking it means one of two things, its grow a new bigger shell or theres something wrong with the water or its diet but eighter way the shell will grow back
No, snails cannot grow back their shells; the shell wall is attached to the organs and blood supply of the snail. If the shell were to be removed, the snails would die soon after.
No, a sea snail can't grow its shell back.
A snail's shell grows over time WITH the snails, and can not be 'regrown' unfortunately.
snails are born with tiny bits of shells as the snails grow the shell grows with it twirling round to form the shell. hope this helps :]
no they cant, but crabs can, they shed the shell, and then it grows back. but when there legs fall off, they cant grow back, there body just turns into a hockey puck.
No, their shells actually grow with them, which is pretty cool. A younger snail will have a very small shell while an older snails will have a bigger shell.
Yes, ALL snails have shells that grow with them. The mantle deposits Calcium carbonate in layers, the grain of a snails shell is the result of this action.
No, a snails's shell grows with the snail. They grow their own shell/
They dont grow them, they find them. When they are born, they have to find a small enough shell for them that is comfortable to wear. As snails get older and grow bigger, they have to find a new, bigger shell because they outgrew their old one.
No, snails grow new shell material at the rim, or mantle of the shell, thus you get the horizontal growth lines on the shell.
Snails grow a shell that stays with them their entire life. They don't find larger ones as they grow.
Yes they can. I saw the process myself! One of my garden snails had a piece of its shell broken, and I was surprised to see that some soft, jelly-seeming stuff came up to fill up the gap. It had the exact same pattern on it as the previous one. Soon this started to harden, and now he has a nice shell! So garden snails CAN grow their shells back. One way to help this… Read More
no every time they grow too big for a shell they have to find a larger one
Snails do not shed their shell their shell is apart of their body. A snail shell will grow with the snail. I currently have 3 snails but in spring i hope they breed! I know they dont need to mate but the type i have do.. ;) i hope i helped good luck if u have a snail... ;)
Im pretty sure snails are born with their shell.
yes, they can because later the shell goes all moldy then a new one grows
Snails secrete and grow their own shells, like fingernails. A special tissue called the mantle produces the shell.
Snails live their whole lives in the same shell growing more whorls as they grow larger and older.
snails leave there shell when they grow so like if there babies they have a small shell and when they grow they leave there shell and then try to find a bigger shell well bye ill be answering more questions soon peace
snails never come completely out of there shell there shell might break so they can grow a new one. but a snail performs torsion in witch its body twist into the shell they create and can not leave there shell but can grow the shell bigger so there shell grows with them
snails need calcium because they use it to repair and grow there shell. common foods are cucumber or lettuce that have calcium
A specific characteristic of snails is that they have the ability to grow a shell. A unique trait of snails is that they are often hermaphroditic.
They grow just like how our nails grow. The snails need calcium and produce newer layers of shell as they get older
No. Unlike animals like hermit crabs (who have to change their shells whenever they grow out of it), shells for snails grow WITH it.
The leg will grow back when the spider molts again, but if the spider loses enough fluids when it gets it loses its leg it will then die.
Snails are attached to their shells (like your muscles are attached to your bones) so they cannot come completely out of their shells. Unlike hermit crabs, who need to find a larger shell when they want to grow, a snail simply grows its shell larger when it needs a larger shell. It secretes more shell material at the edge of the aperture and continues the spiral around. Some snails change the form of the aperture… Read More
No, a snail's shell is attached to them, so it is impossible for them to leave it without hurting them.
they either grow another or find another...not sure tho
yes, they grow back once a year.
nothing the shell will grow back
different species, but they probably look a bit alike to a non biologist.
yes as they grow there shell gets to small for them and they must find another one
Periwinkles will out grow their shells, another creature will then take that shell and the periwinkle will take another old shell. This is an example of symbiosis. :)
No, a conch is a mollusk which lives in a conch shell ,which it secretes itself. As the conch grows the shell gets bigger too, to accommodate it. Sea snails tend not to have any shell at all and if they do have a shell it is one that they secrete themselves. Hermit crabs live in the empty shells of mollusks and move to a new shell as they grow bigger.
No, if a human loses an arm it will not grow a new one.
It does not grow back on
No, if a lion loses a tooth it does not grow back. When sharks lose teeth they do grow back and spiders can regrow a leg when it is lost.
No. The shell grows around the snail as the snail grows bigger, but the snail is fastened into its shell and cannot leave it. Hermit crabs live in empty shells, and find a new, bigger shell as they grow.
It might grow back.
It will grow back.
It will probably grow back
It can grow it back.
No, if a wasp loses its wings they don't grow back. The wasp will die because it can't get about to feed.
Aquarium snails are different from regular land snails. All aquatic snails have gills. Just like their land relatives, these snails also have radula(rasping tongue),tentacles, and hard shells. Aquatic snails do not have as developed eyes as land snails. Many aquatic snails have a door or an opcerium at the entrance of their shell. Some aquatic snails also grow to the size of a baseball.
My cat lost it's claw and it did grow back. I am not sure if it just broke or if it lost it completely, but it is back the way it was.
they grow back or it dies
It Will grow back
After a while it will eventually grow back .
No. A leopard is able to grow back lost skin or tissue, but if a leopard loses a limb, it will not grow back.
