Snails created with AI
"I pity snails, and all that carry their homes on their backs."

Snails were gastropods, noted for their low speed.[2] There were exceptionally large ones around Erebor, one of which fell victim to a thrush, as observed by Bilbo and Balin.[3] Most of them did not survive the onset of Smaug.[4]
