Default Why does my snail keep putting his siphon out?

or her, whatever. I notice they do it frequently, then open and close them. Isn't this for breathing? Like, air, specifically? But they do it underwater. Does this mean something ? ): Or do they just like to do it.
For reference I am talking about this:

It is a mystery snail.

My snail does that sometimes too. He seems happy and healthy though. Applesnails.com has some good info if you want to learn more
