    Which of these can be an irritant to snails?

    • A.

      Bark

    • B.

      Copper surface

    • C.

      Espresso

    • D.

      Concrete surface

    Correct Answer
    A. Bark
    Explanation
    Bark can be an irritant to snails because it has a rough texture that can cause discomfort to their soft bodies. Snails typically prefer smooth surfaces, so when they come into contact with bark, it can be abrasive and irritating. This can deter snails from crawling over or feeding on bark, making it an effective irritant for them.

    Which of these will not hurt a snail?

    • A.

      Espresso

    • B.

      Copper surface

    • C.

      Bark

    • D.

      Concrete surface

    Correct Answer
    D. Concrete surface
    Explanation
    Concrete surface will not hurt a snail because it is a solid and smooth surface that does not contain any harmful chemicals or sharp edges. Snails are able to crawl on concrete without being injured or experiencing any negative effects. In contrast, espresso, copper surfaces, and bark can all potentially harm a snail. Espresso contains caffeine which is toxic to snails, copper surfaces can release ions that are toxic to snails, and bark may have rough textures or contain substances that could harm or irritate a snail's delicate body.

      Its body

    Correct Answer
    C. Its Slime
    Explanation
    The slime of a snail acts as a protective layer that prevents it from getting cut when crawling on a sharp object. The slime creates a lubricated surface between the snail's body and the object, reducing friction and providing a cushioning effect. This allows the snail to navigate safely without sustaining cuts or injuries.

    Explanation
    The Apple Snail is a sub-tropical freshwater snail. This can be inferred from the fact that the other options, Scutalus snail, Roman Snail, and Burgundy Snail, are not typically found in freshwater habitats. The term "sub-tropical" suggests that the snail thrives in warm, temperate regions, further supporting the idea that it is a sub-tropical species.

    • A.

      Grains

    • B.

      Manure

    • C.

      Seed

    • D.

      Fruits

    Correct Answer
    B. Manure
    Explanation
    Snails are known to be herbivores, meaning they primarily eat plant material. While they may consume grains, seeds, and fruits, they do not typically eat manure. Manure is organic matter from animal waste, which is not part of a snail's natural diet. Snails prefer to feed on vegetation such as leaves, flowers, and stems. Therefore, manure is not a food source for snails.

    • B.

      They are more active at night.

      They eat fruits

    • D.

      They are slow

    Correct Answer
    B. They are more active at night.
    Explanation
    Snails are nocturnal because they are more active at night. Nocturnal animals, including snails, have adapted to be more active during the nighttime hours. This behavior allows them to avoid predators and take advantage of the cooler temperatures and increased moisture that night time provides. Being more active at night also helps snails conserve energy during the day when the sun is out and temperatures are higher. Therefore, their increased activity during the night is a survival strategy that allows them to thrive in their environment.

    A. Cone Snail
    Explanation
    The Cone Snail is the most deadly snail out of the options given. Cone Snails are known for their venomous sting, which they use to immobilize and kill their prey. Their venom contains powerful toxins that can paralyze or kill humans as well. The venom of a Cone Snail is delivered through a harpoon-like structure, making it a highly effective predator.
