 Breeding african land snails

I have 2 african giant land snails, one of them has white flesh!, but the normal brown shell( no white shell), is it an albino, if i breed it with a normal snail, what percent of the clutch will be albinos?

Depends on weather it is a dominant or recessive trait, if its dominant about 50% or more will be albino, if not and it is recessive it will be about 30%. Good luck!

What about if I breed 2 albinos together, will the whole clutch be albinos? thanks! my country is infested with african giant land snails, so on a rainy night you can just pick them up from the nearby field, but finding an albino one is hard.

If you breed two albinos, the majority of the offspring will be albino. You say where you live there are African land snails everywhere? Were they captive and set loose? Where do you live???

I live in Singapore, they were all let loose and started breeding like crazy, now our native snails are diminishing.
