5 days 12 hours = 7920 minutes. x = 5280 feet = 1

**mile**.

Thereof, how long would it take for a snail to travel around the world?

34,519 days

**snail**doesn't stop, it

**would**cover one

**mile**in approximately 1.39 days(33hrs. 21min. 36 sec.). By that equation, this nonstop super

**snail should**be able to cover the

**3000 mile**journey, in a mere 4170 days, which factoring in leap years,

**would**equal 11 years, 152 days, 6 hrs.

Hereof, how far can a snail travel in one day?

But with these figures, we **can** work out **how far** a **snail could** cover: there are 1440 minutes **in a day**. So 13 inches, or about 30cm, in 2 minutes, means 21600 cm (or 216m) in 1440 minutes (1 **day**). So a **snail could travel** about 200m **in a day**.

The life expectancy of **snails** depends on their habitat and the species. Some of them only **live** for about five years. However, others in captivity **can live** up to 25 years old.
