There are two very basic kinds of snails. Some snails live on

land and the second basic category of snail lives in water.


Snails like damp spots, especially in the garden. These snails

eat decaying vegetation, fungi, lichen, plant leaves, damp paper

and cardboard. Becuase these snails live in the garden and feed on

garden plants, people often consider them a pest.

Snails also live in a water. People can use them in an aquarium

and they live in the wild. These snails eat algea. In addition,

they eat aquatic plants. In an aquarium, snails eat excess fish

food also. There are also many different kinds of predatory snails

that live in the ocean. These snails hunt and eat fish and various

types fish and invertibrates.
