Hi thankyou , I did but it was extremly messy so i used moss in the corner for them to bury in and they were fine with it , layed eggs and everything and it was generally alot tidyer and less messy for me

Re: My Old Gaint African Land Snails ..

Cute snails....and the albino's are quite rare.

I really would recommend a soil/peat/coir substrate that needs to be a minimum of 4 inches deep. I can tell you love your snails - but If you don't like mess than GALS are not for you, as you wouldn't be taking care of them properly.

I Hve Been Keeping GALS For A Number Of Years .. They Did Infact Thrive In My Care .. Maybe I Worded My Reply Wronge I Dont Know ?

I Even Have Rescued 11 Snails From Brixton Market , And Another Reason To Why I Switched To Moss Substrate Is Because I Kept Getting Nasty Bugs In The Soil ...

Thaankyou For Your Concern But I Really Do Know What Im Talking About

I Dont Own Any Snails At The Moment Anyway ( I Rehomed Them All Because I Have Now Moved To Turkey )
