Yet another one of my own personal totems. :)

Snail as Totem

Australia has a large quantity of native snails, none of which are known to do great damage to garden plants. It is the invasive European snail that we most commonly see in our gardens, munching on our plants. In fact, many native snails are carnivorous and consume European snails! Some species of native snail in Australia are able to remain dormant for years until appropriate, wet weather conditions enable them to move with ease.

Snails are mollusks that move via contracting the muscles in their 'foot' and easing their way with slime (that also can serve as a scent trail to other snails). They are known for their slow speeds and for carrying their internal organs in a protective 'shell,' if the shell is cracked, they can often heal it over time, however serious damage will result in death. Snails eat a variety of foods and live in a variety of habitats. Snails are hermaphroditic. They are eaten by all major vertebrate groups (including humans; OMNOMNOM.)
