snail question

If you were to peel the shell off of a regular garden snail… would it be able to survive?

If nothing else, it would dehydrate pretty quickly.

My experience as a former five-year old snail torturer tells me, “no.”

Nope. A slug isn’t just a snail without a shell ( though that’s pretty close to what it is :slight_smile: ). There are some real physiological and anatomical differences that allow slugs to survive shell-less.
