Snail Search

Snail Search
By: Mike Powell

On our field trip there was a station called Snail Search. We had to measure
the snails and take a piece of string and place it inside an empty snail and measure
how far it went in. We also found out that if you hold a snail in your hand it licks
up the germs on your hand. Another thing is that there's a snail kite bird that lives
in the Everglades and the bird swoops down and catches a snail and eats it. There were
real snails that were climbing out of a plastic cage. That's what the snail search
station was about.
