Am getting my first wrinkles, maybe it is time to remember my childhood habits Your snail is very cute.
    Same here, apart from the face crawling part, but yeah, I used to bring lots of frogs, snails, caterpillars and pretty much every living being I could find. I'm 26 now and it's a bit more under control, just 1 snail and not caught from wild, I got it from a girl who owns a big adult snail and can you imagine, it laid these eggs all alone.

    In captivity about 5 years or even 8 if lucky, I've heard.

    Not what I expected when I saw new post in this thread!

    Ummm no I don't, my mum's had it since before I was born and I turn 20 in December. I believe it's all 1 cactus rather than lots of smaller ones but my mum has taken cuttings of it and planted them in other pots dotted around the house and they've grown very well so I don't know exactly if it's all 1 plant still connected or a series of... well, detached limbs.

    The closest I could give you for a name for it would be Hydra which I called it when I was little after watching Hercules on Disney...

    These are my two turtles. The top one is always being some sort of dick towards the other. Quite amusing some times :')

    It's probably just one that grow into other pieces for sure.

    Thanks anyway!

    I bought new friends for my Achatina fulica (giant African land snail).
    The same species but my old snail is standard color (brown), new ones are 3 x white jade (albino flesh and brown shell) 1 x jadatzi f. construct (pure albino).





    Lucky to be European, I heard they're illegal to keep as pets in USA because of their ability to adapt. In my country Estonia we have -20 degrees Celsius at winter sometimes, most of the time around -10 though. They wouldn't survive that.

    I had no idea people kept snails as pets. How long do they generally live?

    5 years or so.
    They might be illegal in your country too, not sure but maybe that's why they're not popular there. They're really popular in UK though, about 90% of all snailkeepers I see online are from UK (yeah yeah, I visit special forums and joined a snail group in FB).

    EDIT: all my snails together. The "big one" is still not even at half of its adult shell size. He's about 4 months old.

    5 years? That seems a lot for a snail. And I have no idea if it's illegal here on Portugal or not. Though I do know we eat them for sure... Well, I don't. It's ew. o.o

    The big one looks cool.

    Edit: Went on google and there are snails of the size of a person's hand. Can the ones you have grow that big or?

    Awesome snails! I personally think they're...well...kind of gross and if one was on me i would probably die ohgod, but it's cool to see something that's not very common!
