FOR
SALE

CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

(OR HOPEFULLY SOON :))

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU SCROLL...

If you are interested in buying any snail, please contact me via FB Messenger, Whatsapp or email. Please use FB Messenger or Whatsapp if you prefer quicker response (contact).

If you are a returning customer :)

1. We select snails based on photos

2. I book transport upon receiving the payment

If you are a new customer (without a recommendation from a regular customer):

1. I provide calculation

2. We select snails based on photos upon receiving the payment

3. I book transport (or I will return the full payment if you do not like any of the snails I have available) 

Why there is a difference:

Every photoshoot takes considerable amount of time and it stresses the snails. Too many people who contact me are not serious about buying. They just want to look around, kill some time. Well, I do not have time to waste.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

On the other hand...are you just curious about what I have? Do you have questions about different species, how I keep them etc.? Just say so. I always find time to share knowledge with other people passionate about snails ;)

PLEASE NOTE:

The minimum order for international customers is 30 euro (shipping excluded).

I ship with DPD only. When it is still cold, I use a 72h heatpack that costs 3euro, I also charge 2euro for styrofoam box lining and styrofoam filling.

Thank you for coming to this page, that means that you like snails so much you want to have one. And that you want to buy a snail from me. Both means A LOT! Really! I want you to be happy so please do not get upset that I refuse to ship live snails when there is a high chance they get hurt or even die because it is too hot or too cold outside (and no, heat packs are not 100% safe). 

PROSÍM ČTĚTE NEŽ SESKROLUJETE NÍŽE...

Napište mi, o co máte zájem - jsem k dispozici na FB Messengeru, Whatsappu nebo emailu. Rychleji samozřejmě reaguji na FB Messengeru a Whatsappu (kontakt)

Rezervuji šneky pouze ve výjimečných případech a pouze na základě přijetí celé platby. 

Vracející se zákazníci:

1. Společně vybereme šneky na základě fotografií

2. Po přijetí platby balíček odesílám

Noví zákazníci (bez doporučení od stálého zákazníka):

1. Pošlu Vám kalkulaci

2. Po přijetí platby společně vybereme šneky na základě detailních fotografií

3. Balíček odešlu v den, který určíte

Proč je tu rozdíl:

Každé focení stojí hodně času (čekal/a jste někdy až vyleze třeba pět šneků najednou a to zrovna když je venku světlo, aby byly barvy co nejpřesnější?) a šneky stresuje (hlavně světlým šnekům musím pořádně vydrhnout ulitu, aby byly vidět případné chybky, šneci jsou nuceni aktivovat ve dne, tedy v době, která pro ně není přirozená, na rozhodnutí zájemce musí čekat ve zvláštních krabičkách, tedy v novém-stresujícím prostředí). A lidé mě často kontaktují jen proto, že jsou zvědaví a neví, co s časem. Nemají skutečně zájem si šnečka pořídit. Moc děkuji za pochopení.

Na druhou stranu... pokud vás můj chov zajímá, máte třeba jen dotaz k některému z chovaných druhů, nebo chcete zkonzultovat něco obecnějšího...prostě to řekněte. Není nutné to maskovat fiktivní objednávkou. Pro nadšence si vždycky nějakou tu minutu najdu :)

Za polystyrenovou výplň, která pomáhá zabránit prochladnutí/přehřátí, účtuji 30 Kč. Pokud se rozhodnete si za polystyren připlatit, šneky Vám případě úmrtí během transportu nahradím. U objednávek za 500 a víc je polystyren v ceně. Pokud je chladno, posílám s 72h topným sáčkem za 80 Kč.

ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA OVUM

XXL F1

 

Yes, I am the owner of the celebrity snail and the author of the famous photograph. One TV from the UK even asked me to provide some interesting funny video material to make a TV spot about my giant snail. Well, he doesn't really do anything funny - just as his roommates, he enjoys good food and being left alone most of the time :). 

 

I keep two breeding groups of wild-caught snails that come from Nigeria. The snail size (shell) ranges from17cm to 21cm.

PRICE F1: 400 Kč / 16euro

ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA GREVILLEI

XL size "gold" F1 and F2

 

I had one breeding group of wild-caught snails that produced three types of offspring. Large yellow snails with yellow apex - those I do not sell because the look almost like albino shell ovums (except that their columella is bright pinkish red, not orange) and it would just cause even more "yellow snail confusion" than there already is. The other type is a marble form grevillei - a lovely gently striped snail that you can see elsewhere on this page.

 

And the third, my personal favorite, the classic type colored grevillei snails that are however huge - that's why I call them "XL" (see the last image that compare standard grevillei and my XL). In every clutch there is only a few of those (sometimes none at all), that's why the price is higher - but they are sure worth it.

PRICE F2: 510 Kč / 23euro

STATUS F2: available in 2 months

ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA GREVILLEI

Standard size "gold" F2

 

I have now created a one large breeding group consisting of snails I brought from Poland and Austria - those are of standard size (just as you would expect from grevillei) with a very bright pink apex (more saturated than my wild-caught snails and their offspring and also much bigger portion of the shell is pink). From the start those were quite productive so the price of the babies is a bit more friendly :)

I do not hatch any more eggs so after these are sold out there won't be any new available any time soon.

PRICE F2: 410 Kč / 18euro

ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA GREVILLEI

XL size "marble" F1 and F2

 

I had one breeding group of wild-caught snails that produced three types of offspring. Pure yellow snails with pink or yellow apex and then this other form that I call "marble". Some snails keep the stripes pretty prominent, while shells of the others get this overall caramel shade.

Again, I couldn't resist and created my own F1 breeding group so currently there are both F1 and F2 babies available. It is interesting to mention that even marble F1snails have yellow babies in their clutches.

ARCHACHATINA GREVILLEI

Standard size "striped apex" F2

 

OK, one more type to complete my rich grevillei portfolio.

 

My whole breeding group is gold with a striped apex but again (just to make sure you get completely confused :) - there are two types of babies.

 

Some babies start with a striped apex but continue to grow gold or slightly marble like their parents. Some babies start with a striped apex and continue to grow stripy and as they get bigger, their stripes get thicker. Those however I do not have any more.

 

I do not hatch any more eggs so after these are sold out there won't be any new available any time soon.

ARCHACHATINA CAMERUNENSIS

F1

 

OMG I am so proud of these guys! I have never seen anyone selling F1 snails but myself :). So yes, there are my most expensive snails.

 

There is plenty of wc arch. camerunensis but those seem to have a hard time to adjust. Plenty of people contacted me, saying, their wc snails died within a week of purchase. But please do not worry, F1 are very different. Yes, many fresh hatchlings die but once the F1 snails reach a certain size they become very low-maintenance.

LISSACHATINA FULICA

Wild colored F1

 

Yes, boring fulica. So why do I keep breeding fulicas? And the most boring type of fulica? I think they are underrated because there have been bred so many without a vision, without a good wc source. 

 

I found some WC fulicas some time ago and now it is the second "round" of F1 babies. They are not as easy as I originally though so there is not much left from the first round - they failed to fullfil my expectations or in other words...the didn't live up to my high personal breeding standards. The second round is different. I increased the temperature, lowered humidity, increased the space and enriched their diet (ha ha, easy right?) and they are perfect!

There is not so many left so if you want to upgrade your personal breeding pool, let me know :)

ARCHACHATINA VENTRICOSA

Dark body F1

 

OK, I love ventricosa. They are one of my favorite species because they are green, sometimes really green. They also are big snails with very voluminous shells. So just a perfect combination :) 

I used to have only F2 breeding groups but last year I succeeded in coming across wc snails. I kept three F1snails from the first clutches - you can see that they are not as dark in the body (compared to the wc snails, which is quite normal) but the shell shows a really nice green color. It however takes some time to develop - babies of all green green snails start brown :) (you can see adult's apexes are brown or pinkish-brown). So do not get disappointed when you look at my baby pictures or do not get fooled when someone tries to sell you green babies ;)

PRICE F1360 Kč / 16 EUR

STATUS: Few AVAILABLE

ARCHACHATINA VENTRICOSA

Leucist F3 and cream body F3

 

OK, I love ventricosa as I described above. I have a dark bodies wc breeding group and also a leucist group (white body with black eyes) that gives both leucist and cream bodies babies.

Why do I not keep only the wc group if in my into paragraph I stated that I like to specialize in F1 generation (or F2) snails? Well, these ventricosas are special. With green snails you never know - some babies turn green, some remain brown and some become something in between. But this group produces pretty much nothing but green babies and that is awesome! :)

PRICE F3320 Kč / 14 EUR

PLEURODONTE ISABELLA

"Blue" form

 

The only little guys I trully enjoy because they are so easy going. And yes, they are the only blue snails I have, which makes them special. OK, they are really not blue, they just look bluish the way their body shows through the light shell. 

I got my breeding group from Austria about 3 years ago and they have been doing great - no issues what so ever. So if you like snails that are fast, active all the time, not scared of touch and forgive you all the mistakes you might as a keeper make, this is the right choice.

ARCHACHATINA KNORRI

F2

 

I still have some WC snails but they are so delicate and so are their F1 babies. Therefore I decided to focus on breeding F2 that are so much more stable. Yes, still not beginner snails because but you can sneeze next to them and walk normally, not tip-toe, without risking a mark on the shell caused by the shock (ha ha :).

Their shell patter, compared to F1 is slightly different (dark lines are thicker) but I would even say they are prettier.

My breeding group consists of F1 snails of my own breeding and F1 snails imported from the UK.

PRICE F2: 600 Kč / 25 EUR

ARCHACHATINA RHODOSTOMA

F1and F2 Albino body

 

Yes, I just love green snails. Rhodostomas are nowadays considered pretty common species but most of the snails you see in hobby are more brown than green and I plan to change that! :)

My wc breeding group consists of snails from two different sources and some of the babies they produce are remarkably green. Additionally they are very low-maintenance and there are rarely any issues with them - just both beautiful and tough. 

And you guessed it right. I just couldn't resist - I kept some super-green F1 snails and created a new breeding group. First F2 babies are available now.

ARCHACHATINA EGREGIA

"Two tone"

 

Often called the "true egregia" because it has the characteristic yellow half-moon on the shell :)

I used to breed wc snails and also bought some extra large F1 snails from Holland. I kept the best F1 from one line and the best F2 from the other line and finally there are first babies available - F2/F3

LIMICOLARIA FLAMMEA

"Orange"

 

Yes, I started experimenting with small snails. They are fun and active even during the day, which is nice. Right now I do nothing special aside from trying to keep the nice orange color and decent size. Hopefully later I will be able to stabilize some of the variety I am seeing - darker apex and gentle stripy pattern for example.

Yes, I started experimenting with small snails. They are fun and active even during the day, which is nice. Right now I do nothing special aside from trying to keep the decent size. And yes, I do not like shipping them too small so you can be sure that when you open the package, there is a snail, not something that resembles a pin head :)
