@Igbamierun_Adeinbu…Well, it is advisable to get snails directly from the bush, gardens or forest instead of buying from the market after they have been exposed to sunlight and have dehydrated. This is because snails drink a lot of water, so are easily dehydrated and this stresses them out, and reduces their fertility capacity.

Another method could be to pick up snail eggs littered in the market place where it is sold and through a technique, check the fertility of the eggs, because some of them must have lost fertility due to the exposure to sunlight.

What other things do you require?

How long does it take for a snail to grow to full size?

@Khrisbukz The eggs hatch releasing snails about 4 mm long, snails grow up to 10 mm per month. After 6 months, the Achatina fulica is about 35 mm long and may already be sexually mature.

Thank you for this. Is there a snailery I can visit?
