:D Hello my name is peter, i have 3 FBT’s, 1 male cornsnake, and a russian hamster. Well i recently started work at my local exotic pets store, and they have giant african land snails, which me and a friend both thought were quite interesting and both considered buying, but i decided that i would wait a while then order younger ones in to raise. And then the snails at the shop had babies! And i got to take home ten babies and 2 eggs for free! I am so excited, they are only 2-3 mm! So being a good british citizen i gave my friend 2 and i am raising the rest. I would like to keep 2 (’fish’+’chips’, and my snake is called beenz :D) and then i will give the rest away, so if it all goes to plan and any one wants a couple of young GALS then let me know. I am so happy cos now i got them all for free and i get to raise them properly. please reply. Oh and any adice on raising them is greatly appreciated.

I have some apple and mystery snails which are pretty close to what you have(just a lil bit smaller) and all the advice i have to give you is this

*******DO NOT ONLY FEED THEM ALGAE****** I know it seems pretty stupid but everyone tries to get away wit it and it usually kills the snails, other than that you seem pretty well prepared

african land snails are easy to look after but them they grow big and start laying eggs thats the only problem coz they lay loads and if u dont want them you can freeze them but you got to keep checking.
