All land snails are gastropod mollusks, meaning that they belong to the same group of octopuses, which are part of the phylum Mollusca. At the same time, they are members of the class Gastropoda, which includes all snails and slugs. Being a mollusk means lacking an internal skeleton and bones, but snails are protected.
Snails have a single spirally coiled shell. They have muscular foot used for creeping in most species. Land snails are incredibly slow. Their forward speed depends on the species, but usually, it is between 0.5 and 0.7 inches per second. While moving, snails leave behind a trail of slime, a lubricant they produce to allow them to go on any terrain without injuring its body. Land snails aren’t able to hear at all, but they have eyes and olfactory organs. They use their sense of smell to help them find food being their most important sensory organ.
Snails feed on very small things. Most of them scrape or brush particles from surfaces of rocks, seaweeds, animals that don't move, and other objects. For feeding, snails use a radula, a hard plate that has teeth.

Chipmunks are small, ground-dwelling members of the squirrel (Sciuridae) family known for their burrowing habits and love of nuts. All species of chipmunks are native to North America, except one - the Siberian chipmunk.
Chipmunks can dig extensive burrow systems directly underneath or next to natural or manmade cover. They dig two types of burrows: shallow burrows in which they seek refuge while foraging during the day, and deeper, more complex burrows where they nest, store food and spend most of the winter months.
Their average size is 5.08 until 15.24 centimeters in length. Their tail is around 7.62 centimeters long. Their body have shades of brown/yellow/grey fur with white and black stripes down the back.
Chipmunks are omnivores, dining on various types of foods that are found mostly on the ground. Their diets are more diverse during the warmer months, during which time they hoard nuts and seeds in their burrows to eat in the winter.

Groundhogs, (Marmota monax), also called woodchucks, one of 14 species of marmots (Marmota). Classified as a marmot, the groundhog is a member of the squirrel family, Sciuridae.
This stout-bodied rodent weighs up to 6 kg (13 pounds) and has a body length of up to 50 cm (about 20 inches) and a short, bushy tail up to 18 cm (7 inches) long. They have thick fur on the upper parts. The fur ranges in colour through various shades of brown. The fur in the feet are darker, and the underparts are buff.

They feed heavily in summer and early fall, accumulating huge fat reserves for the winter. The animal is a true hibernator.

Well, crickets live in almost every environment. They are found in fields and meadows, forests and grasslands, marshes and swamps, trees and bushes, and even caves, beaches, in anthills and underground.
Crickets use their long antennae to sense things around them, but also to detect smells. Crickets use their simple eyes to detect light and shadow. They have complex eyes which are made up of many hexagonal lenses. They can see in every direction. They eat decaying plant matter and seedlings.
Did you know that crickets are usually black or brown? The average cricket is about 2.54 cm long. Crickets can jump 20 to 30 times their height. Crickets use jumping with their legs as their main mode of transportation even though they have wings.
I hope the information is useful for you.

Grasshopper, any of a group of jumping insects (suborder Caelifera) that are found in a variety of habitats. There are around 11,000 known species of grasshoppers in the Caelifera suborder.
Okay, let me continue. Grasshoppers are ground-dwelling insects with the ability to jump long distances to evade threats. Grasshoppers occur in greatest numbers in lowland tropical forests, semiarid regions, and grasslands. Grasshoppers are herbivorous. They eat plants and other types of vegetation.
Well, grasshoppers can be identified by their two antennas, four small legs, two enlarged legs and elongated shape. A grasshopper’s jump, assisted with its wings, can reach a speed of up to eight miles per hour. A large grasshopper can jump between 10 and 20 times its body length without the aid of its wings. Grasshoppers are commonly brown and green or a mixture of the two. However, there are some species of grasshoppers that have a wide range of vivid colors, like the rainbow grasshopper.
I hope the information is useful for you.
