This is the only source of shells except for fishes and forgotten beasts. It shouldn't hurt to have some of them in your backyard.--Niggy 22:17, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

But the shell is unobtainable since you can not butcher them. --Used 06:25, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Somehow my axedwarf luckily managed to shave the shells from snailmen in multiple occasions, and those shells later became available for craftdwarf. --Lamphare 12:18, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Just leave the carcasses out in the sun for a while. They rot down into shells. --MisterB777 20:14, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Snailmen yielding bones[edit]

My carpenter killed a couple of snailmen in my current fortress. The butcher refused to work with them but surprisingly they rotted and left snailmen bones, despite the [NOBONES] tag.
