|The word snail is a common name that can be used for almost all members of the molluscan class Gastropoda which have coiled shells in the adult stage. (Those snails which do not have a shell or only a very small shell are usually called slugs.)|
This garden snail's shell has a beautiful floral design like a fossilised leaf.
Snails are extraordinarily diverse, in habitat, in form, in behavior, and in anatomy, and therefore what is true of one snail species may not at all be true of another, more distantly related one.
Snails can be found in a wide range of different environments from ditches to deserts to the abyssal depths of the sea. The great majority of snail species are marine.
Many others are terrestrial, and numerous kinds can be found in fresh water, and even brackish water. Many snails are herbivorous, though a few land species and many marine species are omnivores or predatory carnivores.
Although the word snail is often used for all shelled gastropods, the word "snail" can also be used in a much more limited sense, to mean various larger species of air-breathing (pulmonate) land snails.

I love the bottom POV / thro' the glass.
You used a unique POV to capture this interesting scene my friend, we can easily see that loong foot gliding silently on the glass substrate and I couldn't believe that a shutter speed of 1/125 sec. failed to freeze the movement of one of the tentacles. Amazing speed for a snail, eh?
Well shot from the bottom in nice sharpness and pleasant color. Well crop with pleasing color in the background.

A very interesting POV for this shot.The details are sharp with very good focus.
Very good use of the natural lighting.The colours appear natural.
The textures of the snail show well.
