A land snail is any of the numerous species of snail that lives on land. Land snail is the common name for terrestrial gastropodmollusks that have shells - those without shells are known as slugs.
Many of these operculate land snails live in habitats or microhabitats that are sometimes (or often) damp or wet, such as for example in moss.
Land snails have a strong muscular foot; they use mucus to enable them to crawl over rough surfaces and in order to keep their soft bodies from drying out. Like other mollusks, land snails have a mantle, and they have one or two pairs of tentacles on their head.
Land snails are hermaphrodite(have a full set of organs of both sexes) and most lay clutches of eggs in the soil. Tiny snails hatch out of the egg with a small shell in place that becomes stronger as the snail grows bigger.
