MY

SNAILS

 

NO LONGER IN MY POSSESSION
 
 
 

Archachatina degneri WC chocolate body

I purchased a couple of those snail in St. Pölten (03/2015) as one of my first imports. Shortly after relocating to Prague, they surprised me with 7 eggs, 5 of those hatched. The babies however did not survive very long - the last died in spring 2017.

 

GENERATION: F0

ORIGIN: Togo

CURRENT SIZE: 12 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 2

Archachatina marginata candefacta striped

Really beautiful snails - large, heavy, with really contrasting stripes. Offsprings of imported snails (F1) from Michal Simon. Needed to downsize so I sold them to Italy.

 

GENERATION: F1

CURRENT SIZE: 10 cm

QUANTITY(pcs): 3

Archachatina marginata marginata

Those were my dream snails (their bodies are as black as it can get) but the catch is that I never get to see their bodies :D - they are the most shy snails I have ever seen. They have procreated well but due to the need to downsize, I have sold them to Italy.

 

GENERATION: F0

ORIGIN: Cameroon

CURRENT SIZE: 11,5-13 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 3

​Archachatina marginata suturalis silver body

The only suturalis variety I used breed. As with most other species in this section, I decided to quit and sold my breeding group. I had snails from two different breeders and the results were quite stunning: a nice shell pattern from one line and a nice body color from the other.

 

GENERACTION: F3 | F?

ORIGIN: Nigeria

CURRENT SIZE: 10-11 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 3

Archachatina papyracea adelinae, Cameroon

Those lovely snails I purchased in Hamm (03/2016). They seemed to do well for a while but all died in about a year and half. I still have some offspring at the moment but they grow very slow.

 

GENERATION: F0

ORIGIN: Kumbo & Kribi, Cameroon

CURRENT SIZE: 7 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 2 & 3

Archachatina puylaerti albino body

I bought this green beauty from Testudo and short after his arrival he surprised me with a clutch. The offspring were very nice (healthy and strong) but I sold them all since I didn't plan to breed albino puylaerti any further. I though he might be lonely though so I bought 3 dark ones to keep him company. He died in about 6 months :(

 

GENERATION: F0

ORIGIN: Togo

CURRENT SIZE: 9 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 1

Lissachatina albopicta albino body

This variety doesn't exist in nature but was created by crossing naturally colored albopicta with albino fulica. I have sold both the parents and all the offspring to Germany and Austria.

 

GENERATION: Fx

CURRENT SIZE: 7-9 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 100

​Lissachatina fulica Hamillei rodatzi albino body

While keeping snails for someone else, I ended up with a strange bunch of maybe fulicas, maybe some kind of a cross. I have never figured it out but many things were unusual. I decided to give them home for life but never planned to further breed them, except one who has a very strange shape on the shell (you can see the picture in the Gallery 1 section). They all have died however quite early.

 

GENERATION: F?

CURRENT SIZE: 4-11 cm

QUANTITY(pcs): 11

​Lissachatina fulica  var. silverine

I have bought snails of this fulica variety from two different breeders but for some reason they all ended-up dying within a year (well, one still lives in my mother's snail tank). What really surprised me though was the quality of their shell - super shiny shell even when dry. I have never seen this before).

 

GENERATION: F? | F2

CURRENT SIZE: 5-7 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 3| 2

​Lissachatina immaculata panthera

These immaculatas I bought in Germany as a part of "two tone" variety group. Well, turned out that they are usual panthera. I did a test clutch but all babies had some serious shell damage - likely due to a genetic issue. They are still alive in my mom's snail tank but they do not breed (eggs are always removed).

 

GENERATION: F?

CURRENT SIZE: 11 a 12 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 2
