    Just wanted to come here and say that you don’t want to get snails from outside as they can carry diseases.

  2. Wolf_Girl on January 19, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Yes I’m looking for one so I need too know this

  3. Prachetas Joshi on January 19, 2023 at 2:28 am

    My son also has snails and he says snails sometimes eat tardigrades

  4. Karabiner98 on January 19, 2023 at 2:29 am

    Molluscophobic but I still watch this

    Thank you for this informative video! I’m researching Garden Snails before I adopt any so I don’t repeat the mistakes I made with my Goldfish. Don’t worry all my little Goldies are doing great now but I wasn’t prepared for them when I got the first one. Thankfully both of them seem very healthy ever since a kind person gave us the perfect fishtank. Anyway I’d love to raise a Garden Snail. I was also researching aquatic snails but I think a terrestrial Garden Snail would be a better place to start instead. I gotta pick up some pet supplies for my Goldfish soon so maybe I’ll grab a few things for a snail enclosure just in case I adopt one someday. I wonder if there are any snails in our garden. Maybe I’ll look some time, mostly out of curiosity.

    The salt on your hands is really bad for the snail

  17. Ana Paulina Rodriguez on January 19, 2023 at 2:46 am

    What kind of substrate should I use for my snail? I read that peat moss was okay but now I’m reading some comments that say not to use it

  18. starbright horse on January 19, 2023 at 2:46 am

    yo

  19. Jason t on January 19, 2023 at 2:49 am

    do you sell them at your store?

  21. Daniel Bussell on January 19, 2023 at 2:52 am

    can they eat milk weed

  22. Landie Pienaar on January 19, 2023 at 2:52 am

    I still love my pet snails seed and seed Ling and Bell pepper

  23. Mirabylia on January 19, 2023 at 2:55 am

    I would mention salt and starch too. It’s ok to feed snails with our own food, but only if it’s free from salt (or any spice like chili, black pepper and additives).
    BTW one of my snails is crazy for egg shell but not really for the outside. Sometimes scrapes a little the outside too, but mostly munching on the membrane. Oh, and cat food! Usually I soak a few pieces of crunchy cat food in water or apple juice. When it is possible I give them some greens from the garden, there are some they really like.
    For snails it is important to have enogh protein and CH too.

    Can they still survive without any substrate?

  25. Night sky fox on January 19, 2023 at 3:00 am

  28. Austin Smith on January 19, 2023 at 3:04 am

    What kind of salt do I feed it

  29. Huian Xing on January 19, 2023 at 3:05 am

    IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT TO HAVE A CUTTLEBONE IN THE ENCLOSURE IF POSSIBLE!!!! Or eggshells or oyster grit, but the cuttlefish bone is much better of a choice.

  30. Daniel Bussell on January 19, 2023 at 3:05 am

    i love my garden snails!

  31. Catlover GK on January 19, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I love snails i had 10 but they died because they were in the sun too long

  32. Froggy on January 19, 2023 at 3:07 am

    I go to my dads every other week would it be ok if I move the snails terrarium every week or would that be stressful for them?.

  33. Daniel Bussell on January 19, 2023 at 3:07 am

    if you are wonering i was talking abaout my snails

  34. Soaring_Skies on January 19, 2023 at 3:11 am

    Me and my friends found some garden snails outside and we put them in a big enclosure (7ft) and we just took some dirt from outside and put some leaves down. Then we found a log, we put that in, then we put some moss we found by one of my friends house and put that in the enclosure. Is there anything I should change or add and get a rid of?

  35. lynxybliss on January 19, 2023 at 3:14 am

    My dad may get me snails for my birthday as I am starting get obsessed with them and he aid he’d love them too 😀

  36. Wolf_Girl on January 19, 2023 at 3:14 am

    My dog pats way and we can’t get one yet so snails are a good pet

  37. simpelwitch on January 19, 2023 at 3:15 am

    Can you please stop putting the snail on your skin it’s really bad for them

  38. CasiBara on January 19, 2023 at 3:17 am

    Do the eggs specifically have to be like a hatched egg from a bird, or is it able to just be a normal egg shell?
