The Snail is a rather rare critter that spawns in the Underground and Cavern layer. It can be caught using the Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, used as a fishing bait, or crafted into a Snail Cage to be placed as an animated furniture item. It cannot be released once crafted into a cage. It has 10% bait power.

A Snail Cage occupies a 2x3 space. The Snail inside may follow the following patterns randomly:

  • Hide inside its shell
  • Try to climb up to the ceiling of the cage, but fail and fall down again
  • Make a whole loop around its cage successfully
