Conserving mucus is equivalent to conserving water and energy - mucus is more than 90% water and mucus production accounts for about 10% of a pulmonate snail's total energy budget (Denny 1980, 1984).
Pearce found that loping had been reported to occur in a diversity of pulmonates (nine species in three families), tentatively rejected the hypothesis that loping allows for more rapid locomotion than adhesive crawling, and suggested several alternative hypotheses on its functional and adaptive signficance (specifically, that loping might confound trail-following predators, that it might reduce contact of the foot with irritating substrates, and that it might reduce expenditure of mucus on dry substrates).
