Donating to the museum[edit]

A snail on some roses in Animal Crossing: City Folk

As with all insects in the Animal Crossing series, the Snail can be donated to the museum, by talking to Blathers who will give the player a small talk about it.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"Let's me make one thing perfectly clear: snails are not insects. Snails are members of the mollusk family, wot! They are related to oysters, clams, and more obviously to slugs. It's a well-known fact, you can't pick your relatives. Snails have soft bodies, which are protected by hard shells, and their eyes are on the tips of their tentacles. I've pondered from time to time, if one pulled a snail from its shell, would it then become a slug? Blech! The very thought of touching that slimy, mucous-covered body... Most foul! Utterly nauseating! Hooo... But I digress..."

In Wild World[edit]

"I should inform you, some cultures consider snails a delicacy... That means that someone, somewhere, would eat this. How I fear for that person."

In City Folk[edit]

"Ah, if you didn't know, here's a fact for you... Removing a snail's shell doesn't make it a slug! If you did try to pull off a snail's shell-- which I surely DO NOT condone-- its insides would spill out... I... Just got a mental picture of that. I fear I shall never eat again!"

Snails can be found on the upper terrace of the insect exhibit, on the flowers to the right hand side.

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon being donated, the Snail can be found in the room of the bug exhibit with the light in it, resting on a hibiscus bush near the light.

"Snails are mollusks that live on land and are related to shellfish like clams and oysters. One snail can play the role of both a male and a female, so it can lay eggs all by itself. Newly hatched snails already have a tiny shell, so right from birth they are easily identified. Most species have clockwise spirals on their shells, though spirals that go counterclockwise are possible."

In New Horizons[edit]

Once donated, the snail can be found in the butterfly room of the museum, next to the blue and purple flower bushes.

"Snails are not insects, I'll admit. But they're just as revolting to me. Snails are mollusks, you see, and are born wearing shells they cannot remove. Instead, their shells get bigger and biggers as they grow. Hoo! They must get heavy, don't you know! I suppose that's why they need a trail of mucus to move about. A truly foul form of transportation.
