They are often seen after rain, and leave a tell-tale trail of mucus. Being hermaphrodites, garden snails each have both male and female reproductive organs, but although they can mate with themselves, it's more usual to find a partner.

When conditions are dry, snails retreat into their shell and seal the entrance. They can then survive in a state of suspended animation for several months.
