What's Included

Snails are known to scientists as the gastropod mollusks, which literally means that they have "stomach feet." Their uniquely twisted bodies and iconic spiral shells make them hard to ignore. The gastropods found on our shores are as rich as those found anywhere in the United States. We explore their biology and behavior, and learn how to identify some of our local shells.
