Identify Snails and Slugs

Your garden provides a home for many creatures. Though not everyone’s favourites, especially gardeners, you can easily find a variety of snails and slugs munching on your home’s plants. :)

Our helpful friend Peter Topley at the Conchological Society (that’s a posh word for the study of molluscs), has produced a 1-page Snail and Slug Identification Sheet showing pictures of some of the more common species that you’re likely to find in your gardens.
