What is the best way of storing snails?
1 of 1
Snails are fascinating creatures, with many varieties living up to five years or more, and most kinds breeding in captivity, so the growing popularity of these unassuming animals is easy to understand. the best way of storing snails is by putting them in any suitably sized and escape-proof container, and aquarium tanks, large plastic food containers with holes bored for ventilation and even large glass jars have all been used to good effect. How big your container needs to be depends on the species being kept; as a general rule, a square foot (900 square cm) of floor-space will accommodate a pair of Helix snails, while double that number of Cepea snails will happily live in the same area.
