Snails may be known for their slow pace of travel, but they can get to most places eventually. Thanks to the glue-like slime they produce, they can crawl up even vertical objects like trees and walls. The slime also protects the snail’s soft body when it crawls over rough surfaces. Snails live in their own, rush-free world - they have no mechanism for hearing sounds and they are almost completely blind. However, their sense of smell is extraordinary, and in case a snail loses one of its eyes it can grow a new one.
