  • Snails are a very important part of what is called a food web.

  • A food web shows how animals and plants are connected together and how they rely on each other for food.

  • Small animals eat plants, and then those small creatures are eaten by bigger creatures.

  • Snails are called detritivores.

  • They eat rotten leaves and help the soil by recycling waste and keeping goodness in the ground so that plants and crops can grow.

  • Snails, in term, provide food for animals like hedgehogs or small birds.

  • Bigger animals like owls, then eat the small birds and hedgehogs.

  • And so the food web continues.

  • So without animals like snails, there wouldn't be enough food for animals like hedgehogs or even owls.

  • They're all part of a large food web.

  • All the animals in the food web are very important.

  • Even the littlest snails, as they all have a part to play in keeping the Earth working as it should.
