Interesting question !

I've got a snail who's decided to sleep stuck to my window at the moment...

I'm going to have to do some digging around to answer your question though!

Well, I just hope we do get the answer.

This is a very important field of Study. I may even leave a questionnaire for the snails to complete.

Its probably due to moisture,the underside of things would retain the morning dew longer than the top side exposed to the sun , so being in the shade or underneath may prevent them from drying out.
