Snails and slugs

Snails, slugs and worms

Autumnal damp brings forth snails.

They eat decomposing plants, algae and windfalls.

Like earthworms, snails are important in nature for breaking down plant material.

Black slugs are native to Denmark, whilst the edible snail was introduced by monks in the middle ages.

The most recent species to arrive is the Spanish slug.
