All About Snails

Last updated 3/27/02 Examples > Slithery Stuff > All About Snails
Species of Snails
  • Neritidae - A man-eating carnivorous variety, this one can suck your brains right out.
  • Pilidae - Can eat at White Castle's and live to tell about it.
  • Viviparidae - Leaves slimy trails all around your neighbour's swimming pool. Neighbour usually blames your (other) pets.
  • Thiaridae - Multiplies like crazy inside your fish tank, clogging the filters.
  • The above are bogus, but should give an example of a section index. Clicking one of the above links would lead to a page on that subject, maintained by one or more Editors. Or perhaps another section index. Or maybe a little of each :)
Snail Diseases
  • Shell Rot - Result of a bacteria infection.
  • Stomping Boots - This terminal snail disease, common in areas populated by humans, is very hard to treat once contact is made with the hazardous agent.
Breeding Tips
  • Ed's Snail Breeding Page - everything you wanted to know but were afraid somebody would actually tell you. Complete with color photos! (bleh)
