Scientific Classification:

Snail is common name that is applied most often to land snails,terrestrial pulmonate gastropod molluscs.

A land snail is a common name for any of the numerous species of snail that live on land,as opposed to those that live in salt water and fresh water.Land snails are terrestrial gastropod mollusks that have shells.
The majority of land snails are pulmonates,I.e.they have a lung and breathe air.Land snails have a strong muscular foot;they use mucus to enable them to crawl over rough surface,and in order to keep their soft bodies from drying out.
A wide range of different vertebrate and invertebrate animals prey on land snails,and they are used as food by humans in various cultures worldwide,and are even raised on farms as food in some areas.

Hello Srikumar,
Amazing catch, what a special snail! Very well taken your shot. I know it isn't easy to have the whole creature in focus. You did well and the composition is excellent too.
Thank's a lot!

Hi Srikumar,

The snail is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Land Snail. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
