What type of shell does a snail live in?
A snail lives in a snail shell.
A snail shell
It depend on what type of Snail it is because most snail produce their own shells, so the type of snail matters because some snails grow shells quicker than others and have a chance of surviving than the ones that can't grow their shell as quick.
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.
An African snail.
The kind of snail that's an outdoor snail is a garden snail witch is the type that eats leaves and has a brown colour shell.
A snail. A tortise.
clearly not, if a slug lived in a shell it'd be called a snail.
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... ;)
A type of mollusk that is protected by a hard shell.
The largest land snail in the world is the Achatina achatina or tiger snail found in Ghana. This type of land snail has a shell that is pointed and conical in shape. All Achatina snails, besides the achatina, have pointed shells including the fulica, immaculata, and zebra.
It would find a new shell to live in
It lives in it's shell, and it moves by sending "waves" on the bottom of it's body.
"No the snail will not live because it has all of its vital organs inside the shell". Actually a snail can survive a lot. If there is goo and the shell is almost destroyed, its best to put the thing out of its misery. But if the shell is only cracked/chipped, or even has a hole, then the snail will regrow whats needed. Try giving it some green vegetable leaves and a shaded area to… Read More
yes its called a slug:)
yes a baby snail will die if it's shell is chipped because a snail shell is very delicate and so is the snail.
When an ancient animal for example Tortoise or snail die in its shell....years later another tortoise or snail can fit itself in the fossil shell.
What a thoughtful question! Snails are hatched from eggs. When they hatch, they eat most of the shell, but a small part of it stays with them and that is the beginning of their shell. As the snail grows, so does its shell -- in a spiral shape. New shell is added at the opening of the shell. In the center of the spiral is the part of the shell that the snail began life… Read More
Snails are born with their shell. As the snail grows, so does its shell -- in a spiral shape. New shell is added at the opening of the shell by the mantle. In the center of the spiral is the part of the shell that the snail began life with. The shell is made from several layers. The thin outer layer is made from an organic substance known as conchiolin. The thicker layer underneath is… Read More
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.
when a snail is born it has a shell, and its actual body is still growing in the shell.
The mantle is what forms the shell of a snail.
No, a snail grows more shell as it gets bigger. Hermit crabs (which live in the shells of dead snails) however do select bigger and bigger shells as they grow.
What type of snail is this It is brown and it's shell is spiral. It is an aqaurium snail of some sort bought at Walmart.?
Sounds like a Malaysian Trumpet Snail, off the top of my head.

When a female snail lays eggs, she coats them with her "slime" and when the young snails hatch, they're still growing shells. Shells are necessary for snails to live and the "slime" helps harden them. If a snail shell cracks, substances like wax would not harm it and in the event that a snail shell breaks, it is reccamended to draw on it lightly with a crayon to hold it together. I'm not sure what… Read More
you put some food in front of its nose and that is how you get a snail out of its shell
A: Like turtles, snails are attached to their shells. They cannot leave their shells and live. If the body is out of the shell totally, the snail is dead. A few people have sworn their snail was alive, out of the shell, driving around. It must have been the current in the tank making their body appear to move. Snails cannot live out of their shells.
A conch is a large mollusc (sea snail) which makes a spiral shell to live in. It is the empty shell of a conch that Ralph retrieves from the lagoon.
What can I do if the shell on the snail is cracked real bad
Conch are a type of tropical sea snail which produces a large spiral shell.
Conchs are the spiral shells of a certain type of sea snail. The snail extracts calcium salts from sea water and secretes them in the form of a shell.
bilateral symmetry A snail doesn't really have any lines of symmetry because its shell never rests directly on its dorsal side. If that were the case, the snail would have bilateral symmetry
One example of a symbiotic relationship of a snail is when the snail abandons its shell. The shell is picked up and used by a hermit crab. This type of symbiotic relationship is referred to as commensalism because it helps one animal and neither hurts nor harms the other. -Evan C.
The snail can protect itself by, when threatened, retracting into its shell and therefore hiding beneath their protective shell.
Different snail shells are different sizes. If this question in refering to your own snail, measure the whole distance across in th middle of the snail shell. That is called diameter. Then multiplying by pii (3.14). That answer should be a well done estimate for your snail shell. :)
slimy hard shell live in moist areas can live in water eats the alge on fish tanks as food the snail are jellylike,and slimy, icky and they a ded dead dead DEAD i hate them
no. all snails young and old have a shell at all times even if they switch shells. a slug is another type of animal that doesn't have a shell.
A slug is really just a snail without a shell. If you don't know what a snail looks like, go to images on google and type in snails.
It lives in a forest type of habitat
A conch is not a type of fish it is a large mollusc (a sea snail) which lives in a spiral shell.
A freshwater snail is actually a type of freshwater mollusc (like clams and mussels that live in fresh water).
It depends on how big the snail is.
A turtle or a snail have a shell.
Yes, but not the hard, firm type shell you would find on a conch or snail. It's more of a fleshy substance, and softer. If the horseshoe crab get any type of cut or abbrasion, the fleshy type shell will become susceptible to fungi and bacteria, which eat away at the shell and can expose the shell to addional microbes which will eventually become fatal.
They livde to gether because the shell is a home for the hermit crab!
Yes, most snail shells are radial or have radial striations. There are a large variety of snail shell styles, but almost all have radial aspects.
The snail shell provides the hermit crab with protection and every time the crab gets bigger it finds a bigger shell
nothing the shell will grow back
The oldest part of a snail's shell is the center of the coil. When the snail grows, it grows outward
