ABSTRACT
Snail, a mollusk that bears a univalve (one-piece) shell. A typical snail shell is cone-shaped and spirally coiled. There are thousands of species of snails, no two species having shells of exactly the same shape or color. Some shells are drab, varying from gray to brown; others are brightly colored with orange, red, and yellow designs. They range in size from those barely visible to the unaided eye to shells that are two feet (60 cm) long. Snails are found in freshwater, in salt water, and on land.
