Snail eye stalks, feet and shells

We just learned about the Spectacled Cobra.

When you look at a snail's head, those two things sticking out are the snail's eye stalks
and their eyes are located right on the end of them.
(from: wikipedia - land snails)

The slimy bottom of a land snail that moves along the ground is called the snail's foot,
but it doesn't look or act much like our feet do!

Snail shells are always a part of the body, and the shell grows with the size of the snail.
