Snails and slugs live under logs, rocks and other forest debris. Some are arboreal [on trees and shrubs].
They are found in:
- Tropical rainforests
- Subtropical rainforests
- Dry rainforests
- Temperate rainforests
- Eucalypt forests and woodland communities
- Native grasslands
- Limestone outcrops
- Other litho-refugia [rocky outcrops]
Very few native snails have adapted to areas of exotic vegetation e.g. pastures, suburban backyards and plant nurseries.
