Cephalo - Head
Pod - Foot

Thus, the Headfeet!

Snails and slugs are in a different class of Mollusca, Gastropoda. No one really knows how the 8 major lineages (classes) of molluscs are related to each other but figuring it out using DNA sequence data is my Ph.D. dissertation research project.

Very doubtful there were actually S. officinalis, and most likely they are S. bandensis. S. officinalis get very large 30 cm + and require 70 degree water. However, they are prolly S. bandensis which are tropical and get max 4 inches please do some serious research before purchasing because they are not simple to raise from eggs.
