East African Land Snail

Achatina fulica

All giant African land snails are Molluscs (shelled animals) and belong to the class ‘Gastropods’, which includes slugs, snails and limpets



Size: Around 20cm in length



This species of giant land snail is found in East African woodlands and savannahs, in countries such as Kenya and Tanzania.



East African land snails eat fruit, vegetable matter and foliage. They also eat bones or shells to provide calcium, which is necessary for the production of their shells.



African land snails lay eggs. This species can lay between 30-1000 white/yellow eggs up to 6 times a year. The eggs hatch after around 2 weeks and the snails can live up to 10 years.



East African land snails are not endangered. They have been introduced to many areas including the USA, where they pose a threat to native wildlife.
