Snail slug update - mainly for myself you understand...

ok, so the snails at last night's garden party I'm guessing are common garden snails and they either lay eggs in dark soily places (like the soil under my bushes next to the path) and or give live birth.  I'm guessing either method could explain their presence there last night.
slugs are hermaphrodite it seems, so they don't need the rentals around for them to emerge from the soil where they've been growing, or hatching...
it's not very scientific but it has answered a few questions for me.
and I'm not going back to find out exactly how it works, because the pictures on the websites I've been looking at are altogether too slimy.
I thank you.
