I have a few, got them to have babies to fed my puffer fish, they need snails to wear their teeth down. A good regular supply of free fish food.

I got 5 adults and about 150 babies dumped on me at work a couple of months back. (I work at a wildlife rehab centre, but we also have a reptile room). I am down to 3 adults and about 50 babies now. I managed to re-home 2 of the adults and 4 of the babies, my blue tounged skinks are helping me with the rest. anyone else want some they are welcome.

We have one large and one baby left out of the 200 babies that we did have.

Couldn't get rid of them, so finished them off as humanely as possible.

if anyone has snails they don't want, then please, by all means send them my way!

the skink will eat them, also both my chameleons do, and the agamas..

and i also have 5 slow worms who appeared on my desk one day (long story!)

they would be most appreciative of any surplas snails people have!

thanks!

I've had my Giant African Land Snail (linus) for what seems like an age and he's always been on his lonesome, but he lays fertile eggs once every 3 months i take them out and freeze them and last time he did it i ended up with about 600 of the bloody things,

wierd

are you all stupid! :D check for eggs daily when you find some remove them all put them in a sandwich bag, but them in the freezer for a couple of days and then completely crush them all, they will just be yolks at that stage! this is an alternative to just having one snail or having hundreds of babies, and god forbid no snails! trust me getting none is completely unneccessary, and if you only have one, somtimes they self fertilize (especially fulicas)you will have a lonely(its true that they get lonely!)and less active snail, if you need any other help ask me or go to this forum PetSnails Forum - Home
