The Thorny snail's talking animation.

The Thorny snail is a level 13 Summoning familiar. It is summoned using a Thorny snail pouch. It can be used for Ranged experience. The thorny snail is a level 26 familiar and can hit up to 4. Additionally, its Slime Spray scroll can deal a max of 8 damage, which is a big jump from the lower levelled familiars.

The snail can also serve as a Beast of Burden, however it is the lowest levelled one apart from the level 25 Clay being class one, with a combat level of 25 and only one beast of burden slot. The Thorny Snail can only carry 3 items for a player. As a result, it is seldom used, even by low levelled players.
