Super snail sleuth!

19th May 2020

This little butterfly found a snail in her garden.  She fed it some lovely juicy leaves and made sure he could return to the garden after she had a good look at him. 

Fun facts about this snail:

He had a foot, which he used to move.  He had a lovely shell, a hard, spiral protective covering and two tentacles.  His eyes were on the end of the tentacles. Snails do not have any ears!  You can tell how old a snail is by counting the rings at the edge of their shell.  This snail was 4 years old - just like many of you!

Can you find any snails in your garden? Remember to be very gentle when handling living things
