The content of the snail Achatina (Terrarium)

Terrarium for Achatina can be done from a simple aquarium. The minimum size is 10 gallons per snail. The greater the aquarium, the bigger will grow your snail. The terrarium should be cover, because the snails can crawl out of it. It is desirable to arrange the small holes in the lid for better gas exchange. In a pinch, you can just lift the lid to form a small gap. At the bottom of the aquarium to put the litter. Litter can serve as soil “Begonia”, or ideally coconut substrate of 5-7 cm of the mound. You can build a small tub with fresh water, Achatina love to swim. Importantly, the depth of the trays did not allow the snail to choke.

It is clear that nutrient requirements are quite different.

The main criteria, do not overeat puppy — how it looks, how easy it moves and, of course, there are no problemwith stomach. Experienced dog person to navigate easier, but in any case you should have common sense and don’t shrink from to look at the pile that were “produced” by the puppy. The feces OK feature, but not “stone”, without undigested pieces; emptied the puppy without difficulty, the Pope does not travel; it happens several times a day. Continue reading
