  1. class gastropoda

    Class Gastropoda is a large taxonomic class within the phylum Mollusca that includes snails and slugs of all kinds and of all habitats, including land, sea, and freshwater species. The name gastropoda derives from the Greek words for "stomach" and "foot," and it refers to the bizarre arrangement of the animal's internal organs, with the foot located near the head and the stomach behind it. They are recognized by their distinct body plan that consists of a coiled or uncoiled shell (which can sometimes be absent), a ventral muscular foot and a well-developed head. They also have a unique twisting phenomenon during embryonic development known as torsion. Gastropods are the most varied class in the mollusk phylum in terms of size, appearance, and habitat.
