    The original breathing organ of snails is the comb gill (Ctenidium). As this type of gill is only able to acquire oxygen from water, all terrestrial and numerous limnic snail species have reduced it. Oxygen from dry air now had to be acquired directly trough the tissues of the pallial cavity wall. Among the pulmonary gastropods (Pulmonata) a network of blood vessels there makes an efficient means of oxygen acquisition.
