Cepaea nemoralis (Babies)
Grove Snail, Captive-bred Babies (6.35mm/0.25")
Gentle, curious, easy to keep, and safe to handle-- these sweet snails make excellent pets!
They're also waste & detritus-eating cleaners that get along well with a number of humidity-loving animals.
From our Pink Shell Project
See below for details.
Also called Brown-Lipped Snails and Lemon Snails, this terrestrial species can live 7 to 10 years in captivity.
These snails are social creatures and should be kept in pairs or groups.
We cannot guarantee what colour these babies will be.
These babies were hatched from our Pink Shell Project, and (though they should all be "unbanded") we can't yet tell what colours they'll be.
They could end up with shells that are Pink, Peach, or Pink/Lavender, and there's a very small chance there may be some Yellow individuals-- as these all seem to be variations of Pink Shells.
We did not get as many eggs or have as good a hatch rates with our Pink Shelled Snails, as many were breeding/laying for the first time..
We do have many smaller babies that will be available when they're big enough, (as well as some fresh clutches) and will have more of these babies available throughout April, May & June.
Grove Snails are detritus eaters/scavengers that eat a lot of the same foods as isopods, but do need a variety of safe foods.
We recommend keeping babies in smaller enclosures, so that they don't run out of energy while searching for food.
