Common Garden Snail

The garden snail (helix aspersa) is one of the best-known species of snails in the world. As with all terrestrial snails, it is a gastropod mollusk. It is one of the most proliferated terrestrial mollusks.

The helix aspersa is also known with the common name of 'European Brown Garden Snail,' but its scientific name has alternative versions. Some scientists name this snail as Cornu aspersum, Cantareus aspersus or Cryptomphalus aspersus.
