Isn't that awfully quick for a snail?

We used to see absolutely huge snails after rainstorms when I lived in Singapore. Once or twice I ran across snails with shells that were as big across as my entire handspan.

When I sweep the porch after the winter, I always find lots of empty shells. A couple years ago, I swept up over 100 shells. That was a wet winter. Not so much this year.

Might be fast for a land snail. Some marine snails are this quick, though.

We have some forest snails here in the PNW that are about that fast. They're smaller, though, so it takes them longer to get somewhere anyway. It might matter whether they're eating as they go, too.
