Snail glued to a plant. Snails are molluscs that protect themselves with a mineralised spiralling shell. They can secrete mucus with which to glue themselves to their support, in this case, a plant stem. This is done during the daylight hours, as a means of minimizing dehydration and the chance of being eaten by a predator.
