Help and advice on shopping for: Live Snails

Classic skink snacks

Snails are a brilliant source of food for many reptiles including blue tongued skinks, who are famous for their love of snails, as well as terrapins and toads. Our snails come in a couple of different packs to suit different animals dietary needs.

What are snails?

Snails are generally small specimens of the snail animal group that are used to feed reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Snails make for great food as they can eat a lot of different nutrients, gut loading them for consumption by your pet. Each snail also offers some hunting challenges and a large amount of calcium, perfect for developing strong reptile bones.

Why should I buy snails?

Snails are easy to keep, they require a little food but they can eat a large variety including most fruit and veg as well as many feed supplements. Snails will keep for weeks at a time and can be used as a dietary staple, an occasional treat or a feed supplement alongside other live feed. If you have any blue tongued skinks they are particularly good as the species is known to enjoy eating snails.

What are the main types of snails for sale?

We sell our snails in two types of packs; medium and large. The size of the pack reflects the size of the snails within it and not the number of snails you’ll receive. Medium snail packs include 8 medium snails, suitable for feeding to small and medium-sized reptiles. Large snail packs include 6 large snails and are designed to feed larger reptiles.

What should I look for?

Check that your pet can get snails before making a purchase. We recommend trying them with one pack first to see if they enjoy the snails and then if they do, buy in bulk to minimise delivery costs.
