Yea, pretty sure that the sps I'm thinking about. Need a permit now? Well, as much as I hate to admit it , I guess it's good idea to keep tabs on them. I think I'd really like snails...the way they taste:drool: . Haha, They'd be nice as little terr animals but, also, I've never eaten any and I've always wanted to try them. I actually talked to that man on the phone once (Ralph Tucker) and he told me that the local ones I described were edible. :liar:? . I don't know and I'd have to look into that more!kraken said:There are aquatic ones near me that are as big as a golf ball.The snails you mention Galapoheros I may be wrong,but its Helix Aspersa.There are commercial growers,but its hard to get them to sell to individuals without the US permit nowadays
I think those are the type of snails that someone from school tryed to get for me from an asian market when he found out I wanted snails... They died before he got them to me though.kraken said:Thats the one I was trying to remember..dtknow, was the chinese trapdoor.The local ones around here are very similar to them,but stop at a hair under golfball.I will catch a few and try to get pics
those could be either cepaea nimoralis(spelling) or helix asperia(spelling again:wall: ) both really cool snails:drool:kraken said:I have some decent size snails running here about as big as a nickel full grown.They are spiral,and land.
