Where do snails go in summer?
Where do all the snails go in the summer? When it’s rainy and wet and Autumn time we see loads of snails but when it’s hot there are no snails in sight. Where do they go?
They hide! Snails need to maintain moisture on their skin at all times. So in hot, dry weather they don't want to be losing all that moisture. Also, in the light of day, they're very exposed to predators, so they tend to hide away. If you lift up a few rocks or big plant pots in your garden, you'll probably find them there!
