GIANT African Land Snail! | Baby Snails | My Pet Snail

My GIANT African Land Snail & Her Babies! My pet snails. Hey guys! Today I decided to show off my giant african land snail, Shrek. Shrek was rescued from certain doom by a kind couple who found Shrek and her siblings abandoned on the road. Hope you all enjoy her! x Em ******************************************************* IMPORTANT NOTICE As you can tell, I’m super passionate about animals and they really excite me. I know many of you are also like that, but it’s important to remember that every animal you buy or adopt is a huge responsibility. African Land Snails need a special diet and rely on certain temperatures and humidity levels in order to survive. Please do your research and think carefully about whether you can provide the best care for your future pet, and whether or not you know of a good, exotics veterinarian. Not all vets will be able to help exotics!

World snail racing Championship final 2016

The championship heats are held throughout the afternoon, with a grand final at the end with all the heat winners. The winner receives a silver tankard, which is stuffed with lettuce leaves as a reward for the triumphant snail. The Guinness World Record was set back in 1995, when a snail called “Archie” completed the 13in (33 centimetres) course in a far from sluggish time of two minutes and 20 seconds. The Championships are held as part of a local fete and entrants pay 20p for each race entry. Weather Conditions were cloudy, broken sunshine, but pretty humid, which made for slow going or sluggish. Last year's winner, George, was due to return to race this year to defend his title, but died the day before the race! This year's winner was Herbie II, owned and trained by Colin Voss, 45, from Cambridgeshire, a first time entrant to the event. Herbie had the infamous red, white and blue racing stripes along his shell, in memory of the famous VW Beetle. This was filmed by HUTC for news distribution – the copyright remains with HUTC

It has a shell to protect its soft body. When the snail is disturbed, it simply withdraws or pulls itself back into its shell. The fastest snails are the speckled garden snails which can move up to 55 yards per hour compared 23 inches per hour of most other land snails. The snail is a delicacy in French cuisine called escargot. The snail is also eaten in many other countries of the world, often as a fried meal. Common garden snails have a top speed of 45 m (50 yards) per hour. Making the snail one of the slowest creatures on Earth. – Snails are gastropod mollusks; members of the phylum Mollusca and the class Gastropoda. – When they feel threatened, they usually retreat into their shell to protect themselves. – Snails have no backbone. – The largest land snail is the Achatina achatina, the Giant African Snail. Most ground snails are peaceful veggies (well, not exactly all), but the marine species can be top predators of the sea. They are armed with a harpoon like weapon (named toxoglossan radula, snails modified "tongue") injecting a deadly venom into their victims. Snails have many natural enemies. They are the ground beetles, snakes, toads, turtles, and birds including chickens, ducks and geese. Snails’ ancestors are one of the earliest known types of animals in the world. There is fossil evidence of primitive gastropods dating back to the late Cambrian period; this means that they lived nearly 500 million years ago The biggest land snail recorded was 12 inches long and weighed near 2 pounds. It was a Giant African Snail. Other species are tiny being only a few centimeters long when they are adults and just a couple of ounces in weight Snails do not like hot and dry conditions. They like it moist or humid and not too bright. They are herbivores and feed on decaying vegetation, algae, fungi, lichens and plant leaves. As a part of their herbivorous diet they often feed on garden plants and are considered by some to be pests. Common snails have a symbiotic bacteria in their crop that enables them to digest cellulose - they have been known to feed on damp paper and cardboard.

Over 150 snails slugged it out in the annual World championships on Saturday 15th July 2017. The Championships have been running since the 1960s.

The gastropod games are held on top of a table, which has a special damp cloth spread out on it. The cloth has three circles marked on it. The snails are placed in the middle and the first one to reach the outer circle is crowned the winner.

The races are started by a shout of “ready, steady, slow” by Neil Riseborough who is the organiser of the quirky event.

Anyone, young or old, can take part in the World Snail Racing Championships. Competitors may bring their own snails from their gardens if they wish.
