Archachatina knorri is brand new to the hobby. The snail shell is beautifully marbled yellow and black with red coloring at the tip. The snail body is gray.
The snails need a forest terrarium with a substrate height of min. 10 cm. In it they sometimes bury themselves and especially for egg laying the height is very important. Of course the substrate should be well limed. Sepia is essential as with all snail species and must always be offered. In addition, this species also likes protein in the form of Gammarus pellets.
Daytime temperatures of 26°C and a humidity of 80-90% have proven to be good for keeping this species. Like almost all snail species it should be kept in a group of min. 3 animals.
Current size: 5-6 cm
