KOZUE YAMAMOTO’s Snail Drawings 3: Living with No Rush

Today we look into an aspect of the snail’s character that we are all familiar with – it’s speed, or lack thereof.
今日は、カタツムリのスピードなど、私たちにとって馴染み深いカタツムリの特徴に焦点を当てていきましょう。
 
Today’s Featured SNAIL FACT:
“Garden snails (helix apersa) a top speed of 50 yards per hour, this is about 1.3 cm. per second. While they don’t move fast, they do move at a very steady pace. The snails are one of the slowest creatures on the entire Earth.” via snail-world

カタツムリ(helix apersa)は、最速でも一時間に50ヤード(45.72m)、つまり一秒間に1.3cmです。速くは動けないけれど、一定のペースで進んでいきます。カタツムリは、地球上でもっともゆっくりな生き物のひとつです。*Read the latest on snail speed studies: “Snails’ Top Speed Is Revealed In New Study”  via Huffington Post
