Short care sheet for Dwarf African Snail (Archachatina papyracea):
Size: up to 6-8 cm
Temperature: 26-29C day / 23-24C night
Difficulty Level: Easy
Relatively small representative of genus Archachatina in comparison to other genus members, but despite of the size this is very cute species with albino shell. Great choice for any beginner!
They are nocturnal, so don’t expect a lot of activity from them during day time, but they can wake up and come to eat if you will put a fresh food into their enclosure or if you will make a warm shower. As most of the snails it feeds on variety of vegetables and fruits and need a permanent access to source of calcium (cuttle fish bones or plain white chalk).
Dwarf African Snail is a burrowing and so this is pretty messy – regular cleaning will be necessary. This is not recommended to use enclosures with significant height as they might fall and damage their shell badly. So horizontal design is the best option for them.
