Snails on the loose! By Aine, Catriona, Alison and Kayleigh
Introduction! Welcome to our slideshow on snails. Meet our two snails Fred and Speedy Snailalez. Unfortunately our two other snails Harry and Larry were unable to compete in our experiment due to personal reasons. We would like to thank our snails. Hope you enjoy our PowerPoint presentation!!!!!!
5 weird facts! Snails don’t have ears! They are very sociable and one of their favourite games they play is climbing on each others shell They are able to fold right in to their shells and their eyes pop out first when they remerge! The spiral on their shell always spiral to the right! The gooey slime trail they leave behind them is snail mucus!
Habitat, Food and Predators Snails like to live in moist places where there are protected from predators. Eg. A forest or places with lots of rocks. Snails like to eat lots of grass, leaves and lettuce. We also found out that liked the taste of our copies and artwork!

In France snails are a popular dish.
Snails age Some snails are known to have lived for 30 years but this is not the case with your average snail. The average snail lives for 5 – 7 years but in different climates they can live for up to 25 years.
