Snails 'faster than we thought'
Moving at a snail's pace means going really slowly - but new research shows the slimy creatures are faster than people thought.
A new experiment has shown that snails can travel at a fairly speedy one metre per hour!
Researchers attached multicoloured LED lights to the snails so they could track their movements over a day.
The snails were fast enough to explore the length of an average UK garden in a single night.
