well i keep mine on coir (eco earth, forest bedding)all same thing just differant names) they like a piece of bark so they can bury under, they eat a variety of veg and fruit cucumber being their favourite, also pop a piece of cuttle shell in for them to nibble on this gives them the calcium they need for their shell...daily warm water mists..and thats about it really..enjoy
-use a good quality soil (John Innes No 3 has less mites apparently, so I use that)
-if you get more than one snail they could lay eggs at any time once their shells get to around 10cm wide. Check for eggs VERY often as they hatch within days and you don't want 400 baby snails to rehome!
-you can freeze the eggs for 24 hours to dispose of them
-change the soil once a week
-add a shallow reptile water dish (or one with steps sold in reptile shops), but this is optional.
-feed fresh fruits and veg once a night. they even like chicken! don't feed them anything containing salt though obviously I use a plant pot dish to put their food in so it's easier to remove the uneaten food later.
They're lovely my two A. fulica breed every month lovely babies some pet stores are welling to take some so I'm happy about that!
Good luck with them if you leave the two together they can keep sperm for up to 2 years so be ware of them! :shock:
how and mine seem happy enough above my snake tank and get their heat from that. my bedroom's always quite warm anyway. for normal rooms not as stuffy as mine though I'd reccommend a small heat mat placed under a third or maybe half the tank. they seem to do better when they have the choice or being warmer when they wish.
