These brown lipped snails are very common around us. Slugs and snails are gastropods – which can be translated as “stomach foot”, though in fact the stomach is protected inside the shell! The colour and banding of these snails can vary from light yellow to a very dark brown, or even orange. They can have anything from zero to five bands. They are an important food for many birds and small mammals.
