All snails have shells but not all Gastropods have shells. Snails are in the gastropod family.
yes snails move into new shells but not all kinds of snails do .
Snails don't change their shells. Unlike crustaceans, molluscs like snails keep the same shell throughout their lifetime. The shell is formed from secretions from the snails mantle, the flesh under the shell, and some snails (such as the giant African snails kept as pets) can be seen running their mouths along the edge of their shells, to build up another layer on the shells lip. The stripes that make up the pattern of a snails shell are the result of different compositions of shell material at different times.
Snails grow their shells from the calcium in their bodies. It is secreted out of the mantle of the snail. There shells grow like our fingernails do.
Snails have beautiful shells and are slimy but cute.
Snails sleep inside there shells.
Snails dont rebuild their shells. I used to think that slugs were just snails without shells, but without their shells, snails die. Their bodies are sort of connected to the shells.
No. Unlike animals like hermit crabs (who have to change their shells whenever they grow out of it), shells for snails grow WITH it.
