I have one of smmoth kind of snails, it is about 9 moths old, and lives in with my brother's and sister's ones. I like the look of the marginita ones, (I don't know if I spelled it right), but you say they are hard to find. I'm getting really interested i snails now, and I found your pages really interesting and useful

I really enjoyed your website! There was alot of good information and really great pictures. I have 3 snails myself (though I don't know what kind). Do you know of any good snail identification books that are available? I would really love to find out exactly what kind of snails I have. Their names are Snaily, Pookey, and Gunther <---recent addition. I would love to send you a picture of Gunther. I just took one today and have to get it developed!

I plan to btain an African giant land snail as soon as I make a proper setup! Thank you for your cute page and useful information. Keep up the good work!

Was trying to identify a snail I found outside today. It is definitely Achatinidae, but I am not sure if it is fulica or marginata. It is 166mm long. What are the identifying characteristics? Most of the ones I see are in the 80mm range.

Your information is fantastic - far better than any book I have managed to find. Its been a rather botched attempt a rearing Jet-Plane, my only snail, but after 4 years (his/her birthday is about now) s/he still seems content. Do snails get lonely? I don' really want to be breeding right now, and anyway where would I find another singleton the same size?

After hours surfing the web I had one more go at trying to find out about GALS. I got one hit and it was your site! Needless to say, within 4 hours of finding your site I was the proud owner of 2 snails. As might be expected with any new parent (!) I'm st ll not totaly confidant that I'm doing everything correctly but repeated visits to the site has eased most worries. Just two questions...How damp/moist should they be kept and secondly what is a normal length of time for them to be burried per day? One of mine has spent almost the entire time I've had it (47hrs)under the peat. Many Thanks Annette.

Hey! These pages are really great! One thing I'd like to find out though... I have one snail so I don't have this "problem", but what do you guys do with the babies? I mean, do you keep all of 'em? My snail - I think - is kinda bored and he/she would maybe like to have a friend, but I can' keep so many snails, so... Anyways, thanx for the great pages !

Help! our snails are eating us out of house and home! When they were tiny a lettuce leaf would do for a couple of days. Now they get through an entire salad da I take them into the preschool I supervise, and the children love them. Nursery inspectors are particularly keen that children have opportunities to express 'awe, wonder or disgust'. The snails cover all of this!

I was walking to school when I found a snail about to go into the sewer so I saved him from a smelly dealth and well I put him in my 50 gallan terraium and gave him lettuce. He was fine for a few days then he succtioned himself to the top of the aquarium. It's been 3 days that he won't come down and when I try to peal him off his shell makes a crunching sound so I stop trying to peel him off. What's wrong? Do you know?

Hi! I have learned a lot about land snails from your site. I went looking for information on them after seeing 3 in a pet store. I have never seen them before and no one else had either, in this area. After visiting your site I bought all 3 and believ they are Achatina marginata (going by your photos) Would you know how large they can get? My three have shell that would be 4 to 5 inches long. Hope to here from you. Thanks again

I especially liked Snoggie. What a cutie! Most snail site talk aboth them as food! I am appalled by this! Finnaly some refreshing "happy" sites! I have a dog, and she is also cute.

A very useful site. We discovered it about ayear ago having tried desperately to find information on rearing African land snails locally. We now have a problem. Our snail has stopped eating and moving, and has taken to just hanging from the roof of the tank. It appears to have lost the will to live. Any suggestions? Any advice you could offer would be most welcome. We don't believe that we' e changed any of the living conditions and the temperature seems OK so we are at a loss to understand what to do next. Local vets and pet shops have not been able to offer any constructive comments.

Do you own a Giant African Land Snail?: various species in the past Did you find these pages useful?: interesting

Comments:
I should read your pages again, too much information to absorb in 10 minutes. However, I think your species is called Archachatina marginata suturalis, that is, if it has indeed an pinkish apex and columella. A. marginata marginata is larger and its shell lacks reddish colour. I have kept several species of Achatinidae (Achatina species, Limicolaria species, Archachatina species) in a terrarium for quite a while, without bothering too much about obtaining offspring. I had good results with Archatina ventri osa from Ivory Coast, but a friend did even better. I have no more specimens at present. That Achatina achatina is treatened or protected is nonsense, but importing live snails may be legally forbidden. They can contain nasty parasites in the mucus, I was recently told, nematodes I believe, so take care. There is much more literature on Achatinidae breeding than the paper by Plummer you mention.

I would be very interested to know whether fulica and marginata can interbreed. I don't want any babies (what would I do with them all?!), but I would like to let my fulica have a friend. Also an interesting observation: My fulica lays eggs now and then, even though it has been on its own since being very small. They never hatch, as I presume they are infertile. I didn't know snails did this.

I found your site listed on the Jacksonvile, Fl. website. I didn't know that people in the U.K. kept ACHATINA as pets. You can't import them here because an infestation in the '60s took several years and much money to cure. They love to eat sugar cane, bu the cane growers don't like sharing their crops with mollusks. The largest land snail native to florida is EUGLANDINA ROSEA, or the Rosey Wolfsnail. It has an attractive pink, bullet-shaped shell about 40 mm. long on average. I tried keeping them as pets when I was a child, but they would not eat the veggies that I fed them. This is because EUGLANDINA are are among the few types of landsnails that carnivorous. They eat smaller snails of different species. The state of Hawaii also had an infestation of ACH TINA FULICA. They tried the novell stratigy of importing EUGLANDINA to eat the ACHATINA. Unfortunatly, ACHATINA are too large for EUGLANDINA to eat, so the Wolfsnails started eating the unique native Hawaian snails instead. I went to Oahu about three year ago and went hunting for landsnails. I only found two species, ACHATINA FULICA and EUGLANDINA ROSEA! Anyway, I think you have a very interesting hobby, and I have enjoyed your website. Yours Truely, Andrew Vik

I heard that it woud be good, if you would oil the shell before they lie in to the (I don't know the word in english, but hope you'll understand what I mean) "dormant". That shut cover the shell from drying too mutch and provide against scale off. I've tr ied it once or twice, but i'm not sure if its nessessery. atleast it makes shells shine. What do you think? And what else could help if shells starts to peel off? My tank has not been wet nough I think, and becouse they are still just babies the shell are more fragiled (?) There was some other questions to make for you, but I forgot them. I'll be back as soon as I remember...Thanks for now!!!

I'M VERY CONCERNED, BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, THE OTHERS ARE FINE THEY'RE NOT VERY INTERESTED IN HIM BUT ARN'T BULLYING HIM OF ANYTHING. i'D BE MOST GRATEFUL FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER, (BY THE WAY I THINK THEY ARE THE WEST AFRICAN ONES AS WHEN THEY WERE EGGS, THEY WERE THE SMALLER TYPE AS SHOWN ON YOUR PAGES).

It came to me one night that snails were such odd creatures, and although I'm not terribly interested in them, I had a need to know how they grew. How did they get their shells? Are they born with shells? Or do they start out as slugs, and if so where o they get their shells? I asked all the people I knew who may have had more animal biology than I have and the best answer was to look it up on the internet. So here I am and I think I got the bes answer here.

Being new snail owners, and not being able to find much info, your page was very helpful. Tip: if your snails have retreated into their shells for some time and appear to be dead. Put them in a small dish with 1/4 cm of warm water. They will pop out in about 5-10 minutes!

Fascinating - the other half & I were having recent discussions as to whether snails could reproduce by themselves from being squashed!!. In other words, would you end up with a bunch of baby snails if you squashed one snail which had been ready to mate! He said thats why gardeners always collect them and drown or whatever them instead of squashing them. Any clues? We have heaps around at the moment and do a collection run every morning and put them into a coffee jar. Loved your "laid back" style. Very informative for someone who knew nothing about snails other than them having a shell and both male and female bits on the same animal. Keep up the good work.

As my husband is Ghanaian I visit Ghana frequently. I know how these snail taste (sorry I am not a cannibal nor vegetarian) and also know how to prepare them.(for those who want to know: they taste like the 'smell of a wet forest') But last time when I b ought them home (you just buy them along the road, the village people catch them in the forest) and showed them in my workingplace, I watched their(the snails) funny faces and fell in love with them, So right now I owe 9 funny creatures and I must say tha your pages are of big help for me as I didn't know anything about them. Now I am real fan and my dogs and cats find them very interesting. So let me join you.

Thankyou i have been trying to find some info for sometime. I have five who don't have names as i would only get confussed,but know them apart in charater. Question: How old are GALs supposed to be before they lay eggs? I was told about two years old.But mine are just one year old now and have been laying eggs constantley for the past fortnight.Do you freeze them to kill the eggs or do you use another method? I hate doing this but it is a necessity as i couldn't bare not knowing whether they were going to a good home or not and my friends do not see how adorable they can be. A thousand thankyous to you.

Say hello to my snails, Megabyte and Kipper! We were very happy to know of the extensive menu, as I was told at the petshop only lettuce and cuttlefish. Thankfully they can now enjoy a full range! One question, why is Megabyte a lot smaller than Kipper when they are the same age? Keep up the good work.

Thanks for being there when I needed the info.I just bought four 4.5cm fulica (Ł2.20 each!) I'm afraid my reasons for needing the info may be a considered a little sinister. I keep Pink tongued Skinks which are moluscovores. I'm sure I'll get to like the parents but their babies are lizard food. Thanks again.

I love snails so much. Please continue with this. People out there - I have some Achatina fulica and I`m on my way to getting some Achatina Achatina. Is anybody able to post me any other breeds? I currently have some young Achatina fulica available if anybody is interested in some kind of an exchange.. And join the British Conchological society too!

[Annette's comment: Sorry - I think Frank did a great job with the piccies - we're both amatures, and I certainly can't afford to get professional photos taken - specially if they charge by the hour, knowing how long my margies take to appear ... ;-) ]

I'm hoping to produce a FAQ page when time permits, and also add a links page which should hopefully link to sites with more factual information on GALSs, as opposed to the pet angle which I have taken.]
