Pond Snales

Pond snails are a fascinating and welcome addition to the pond, performing a useful job by helping to keep it clean. Most of the common species of snails in British ponds are scavengers, feeding on plant material and detritus, scraping away at their food with a muscular, rasp-like tongue called their radula. No matter how you feel about these animals themselves, it is impossible to deny that they are really very good at what they do. Even if they are never going to be your favourite kind of pond-life, their unique biology and remarkable ability to find their way to just about everywhere makes them an interesting group – however grudgingly you choose to admit it!
