My dd asked me this today and was so dissapointed that I didn't know. I promised her I would find out and I don't want to shatter her illusion that her mother is the fountain of all knowledge!

So what do snails eat????

Memories of childhood and trying to grow them in the garden... I would have to say STRAWBERRIES

Tried to grow the strawberries... not the snails...

We have a pet snail - Shelly's favorite food is cucumber, but she also eats lettuce and apple and occasional a bit of carrot. She also eats cuttlefish bone to make her shell stong.
