Snails drink water not only with their mouths, but also absorb moisture through the outer covers of the body. Once such an experiment was set up: the snail was carefully dried and then placed in a damp place. For 6 hours, the snail absorbed through the mucous membrane an amount of water equal to half its weight. In the early morning snails drink dew with their “skin”, shaking it off the leaves.
The nature has provided the largest number of teeth, apparently, the garden snail, which is found in America. Her tongue is seated with 135 rows of teeth with 105 teeth in each row. When a snail "gnaws" an underground corridor, it wields ... 14, 175 teeth!
