    Hello everyone, I have been reading about parasites and diseases that can be transmitted to humans by pet giant African snails since last year. The reason I read these articles is that I want to feed the giant African snail, but I do not trust the hygiene of the sellers in the country where I live. It is also illegal for me to buy snails from sellers in the UK. That's why I'm thinking of buying snail eggs from sellers around me. I wonder if the baby snails that will hatch will be completely parasite-free?
    If I bought snails while they were still eggs and allow them to grow up in a sterile environment, does the risk of developing a parasite disappear?
