“even if it’s a snail’s pace”
Like a rubber band, a snail expands and contracts.
Movement comes as a result of a rippling of the flat underbody that flexes and
releases tension which pushes the snail forward.
The underbody is made of muscles.
Like an old rubber band, a snail is rigid.
Flexibility comes as a result of excretion of silvery slime allowing the snail to
move around corners, upside down, and other situations.
The gravity is defied.
Like a discarded rubber band, a snail might be regarded as not good for much.
Movement is slow and appears heavy creating stigma of being lazy. However
trivial, headway is steady.
The weakness is offset by a durable shell.
