GREETINGS
SNAIL
FRIENDS

Our collection is not the biggest in the worlds, not even in the Czech Rep., but I give loving care and undivided attention to each one of the slimy guys that live with us. Most of my breeding groups are WC (wild caught) or F1 (the first generation bred in captivity).

 

I offer offspring for sale and ship them around the EU when weather allows. The well being of the snails is always the top priority, customers come second (sorry :). Saying that, customer satisfaction does matter though and I always try to choose the right snails for you (send current photos for approval) and the right shipping option. That is the reason why I have no e-shop - I want to talk to you, I want to know what you are looking for, I want to give you the best of what we currently have and sometimes even talk you out of the deal. So send me a message, I might have something just for you! 

PLEASE NOTE:

As of Aug 1, 2017, the minimum order for intl customers is 20 euro (shipping excluded).

MY
SNAILS

Currently active in breeding

If you are interested in buying any of the snails or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help if I know how. Likely I won't reply the same day because I want to give your message the time and attention it deserves - snails are passion I want to share, not a product I simply need to sell fast. I look forward to hearing from you! :)

Acavus Haemastoma

"dark"

MIX OF GENERATIONS

A must-have of every snail keeper :) They proliferate slowly (only one egg at a time that incubates for 3 months). Other than that, they are very low maintenance.

KEEP
IN TOUCH

I live in Prague, the Czech Rep. A pick-up can be arranged at ZIVA EXOTIKA fair in Holesovice, Prague 7 (this event hasn't been held since COVID-19, ). Recently, I have set up a little snail room in Prague 8. It is still a work-in-progress and not accessible to public on regular basis but if you would like see the parents of the babies you plan to buy or just choose the babies yourself, let me know, it can be arranged :).

Shipping within the European Union

I am sorry but I DO NOT SHIP TO THE US. Shipping live snails there is A) illegal, unless you, the buyer, have a special permission and B) too dangerous for the animals since the trip is very long (snails are sensitive to extreme temperatures, especially to heat). I do ship to any country of the EU as long as the weather allows.
