These little mollusks are famous for living in their hard shell and slowly crawling and "drooling" where it passes. Although we do not see it, in addition to their horns, they have thousands of denticles in their mouths that serve to tear food and scrape mold from rocks to feed. Their mucus allows them to remain on the wall and scare away dangerous insects to protect themselves from aggressions. The preferred foods that snails eat are those rich in calcium. This is because your shell needs large amounts of calcium to be strong and thick, thus preventing it from breaking and being unprotected. If the animal feels the need to ingest calcium, it can even eat stones or soil. Therefore, a brittle or broken shell may be a sign of poor feeding or deficit of this component.
The snail drool is the mucosa that is released when it needs to defend itself. This slime in most snails contains numerous properties that benefit skin care and, therefore, is very popular in the world. This substance serves as aloe vera as a repairman of natural tissues, since it allows the skin to heal faster, eliminating spots, burns or stretch marks. The miraculous compound of this substance is allantoin, which contains antioxidants that help keep skin healthy. The drool of some snails is very good for skin health!
