(Oct 2017) day 22 - trail
Snail trail
You can kinda see where I gave up and couldn't be bothered with the shell anymore
Science: 'snail' is a basic common name for any Gastropod with a shell and they can live on land, salt water or freshwater
They can breathe either through a lung or gills.
Most of them are herbivores, scraping stuff off the ground using a tongue with heaps of teeth on it called a radula (actually terrifying when magnified) but some are predatory.
The mucus they secrete that becomes the snail trail is to stop then from drying out on the ground.
Fun fact: the shells on snails are mostly right-handed - they coil to the right
Do you guys like the random science lesson on these? It's kinda fun looking up all this stuff and then sharing but effort ew

🐌 Fringed Slitmouth Snail-
(Stenotrema barbigerum)-
Description:
Small, brown, terrestrial snail with long, coppery hairs on its shell surface. Many scientists hypothesize that these hairs are an adaptation for movement through wet habitats. This is a first time-spotting for Project Noah. NatureServe lists Stenotrema barbigerum as G3/G4 (Globally Vulnerable). On a national level (in the US), S. barbigerum is listed as N3N4 (Vulnerable). Habitat:
Resting on a red oak leaf in a moist, dense mixed hardwood forest.
