Snails are one such species that carry their home wherever they go. They have a coiled shell into which they can completely retract in case of danger or otherwise. There are land snails, freshwater snails, and sea snails. They belong to the molluscan class Gastropoda. They are known for being one of the slowest living creatures around.
So, have ever thought what they eat? This tiny animal may not have a large appetite like most of us, but surely do eat quite a few things. Land snails belong to the herbivorous category. If you wish to please your pet snail, you can include loads of things in its diet plan. Terrestrial snails can eat leaves, fruits (especially apples), algae, the soft bark of a tree, grass, carrots, etc.
Aquatic snails feed on slightly different varieties of food. They also eat plants and algae, and apart from this, they feed on plankton and other various types of organisms that are found in the water.
