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.
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,
are you all stupid! 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
