How to: Look After Inverts

Giant African land snail

An at home habitat?

Giant African land snails can live together in the same enclosure - this should be a glass fish tank or large storage box with holes, no smaller than 30cm and kept at room temperature. Fill with a deep layer of substrate and plenty of sphagnum moss to keep it damp.

Snails love to climb! Tree branches from the outdoors are ideal decorations for your enclosure - ensure you soak them in boiling water to remove any foreign bacteria before adding them to the enclosure.

Spray your snail with water twice a day to keep it damp.

What should we feed it?
