I happened across a blog post today at BugBlog about hibernating snails, with a great picture that shows how they block off the opening to their shell. I've found plenty of these same large brown snails dormant around the base of the outer walls of the house, behind pipework etc.

Clearly the example in the picture above is not hibernating (I took it last may)!
