giant african land snail

  1. Amphibians
    I have recently come into possession of quite a lot of gAls hatchlings, and was wondering if these could be fed to my fire-bellied newts. They are currently feeding on bloodworm and brine shrimp (both frozen) but I don't know if snails would be suitable live food. Thanks for the help! :)

    Hi, I have inherited a Giant African Land snail from a school where I work, as they no longer want it. I have followed all the necessary steps for keeping one. However over the past week and a half, it leaves these hard white lumps of on the tank walls. Is this normal or should I be worried...

    I'm slowly trying to improve my giant African land snail tank, because my snails are fully grown and they're pretty cool. I've read some hints and tips but I'm worried about going through with them without hearing from other people who've done it, since these are my first snails. One is to get...

    The shell line/growth line (beginning of the shell around the hole) is really thin and is chipping away, the rest is normal but the growth line is really thin and fragile. What does this mean? HELP?

    Hi, I have acquired 7 rather large GALS, the previous owner told us that when she rehomed them they were in a bit of a state, basically their shells were falling apart, splitting, flaking and some having holes in them. She seems to have done a good job in turning them around, but told us there...

    On the lookout for some more GALS, for my little boy. He already has two, but would like a few more for him. Not fussed on species, but compatable with Fulicia would be preferred, and would like a couple of adults/babies. Willing to pay for postage

    Hi, guys. So I've determined that I have something of a fungus gnat infestation in my GALS tank. I've read that they're not too much a problem in terms of the snails' health, but they're doing my head in and I'd like them gone, basically. Does anybody know of an effective way to deal with...

    Giant African Land Snails. How long are they supposed to live ? We have had one for five years now, and it was not a baby when we got it. Is 5-6 years good for a GAL ?
