Acavus haemastoma haemastoma

"the dark type"


Mix F2, F3 and unknown

Active in breeding:


This is probably the most commonly kept color variation and the least rare but I personally consider them the most beautiful ones. The really dark brown shell with maroon red columella and the prominent shell opening. A single contrasting white stripe. I even have a one really rare snail (I think the only onw in hobby) that is all dark without any stripe! Their price is much higher than the price of any archachatina but the reason is logical - they lay only one egg at the time and the inculbation period is c. 3 months.
