The snail is a bug that was first introduced in Animal Crossing and his since then appeared in all of the Animal Crossing games.


[edit] How to Catch

The Snail will be sitting on a flower when it is raining. The snail is very slow and will not move unless you happen to step upon. Because of this, the snail is very easy to catch. Simply bring out and equip your net, get within reach of the snail, swing your net, and ta-da!

[edit] Players

Catching a snail on Animal Crossing: City Folk

This is what the player says when you catch a snail:

[edit] Animal Crossing

\'I caught a snail! Hey, this isn't a bug!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a snail! Escargot? Escarg-NO!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a snail! Seriously, though... Could you fail to catch a snail?"

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Snail in the bug menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

They have tiny, tiny teeth--20,000 of them--which they scrape across their food to eat.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These grind their food up, using their 20,000 teeth like a file.

[edit] Museum

This is what Blathers says when you donate the Snail:

[edit] Animal Crossing

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I should inform you, some cultures consider snails a delicacy... That means that someone, somewhere, would eat this. How I fear for that person."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Ah, if you didn't know, here's a fact for you... Removing a snail's shell doesn't make it a slug! If you did try to pull off a snail's shell-- which I surely DO NOT condone-- its insides would spill out... I... Just got a mental picture of that. I fear I shall never eat again!"

[edit] Trivia

  • Snails are one of the easiest bugs in the game to catch.
  • The snail has a large mollusk around its back for protection.

[edit] Real Life

A Snail in real life

The Snail is a common term for insects that have a mollusk on their back. The life span for this bug is 15 - 20 years, although snails have been known to live for thirty or more. The Snail that we see in the game is a Terrestrial Snail. Terrestrial snails are herbivorous and they usually eat things such as leaves, stems, soft bark, fruit, vegetables and algae. Snails can be eaten and are called Escargot.
