There are a lots of snails kinds on the planet, and these creatures managed to work out incredible life mechanisms in the process of evolution. Here are some amazing facts about these interesting creatures.

2. Snails are able to hibernate for up to six months and transfer the temperature to -120 degrees.
3. On average, snails live for about 15 years. Such a life expectancy is typical, for example, for the Amur tiger.
4. Most of the snails are hermaphrodites, that is, the snail is male and female at the same time. And they don’t need a partner for procreation.
5. Snails grind food with the help of 25 thousand teeth. Thus, they have much more teeth than any shark.
