New manual for choosing the right breeding tank


Finally, I started to work on breeding manuals in English. I added a manual about breeding tanks first. I hope that you will find some useful information in the text. If you will find mistakes (my English is not very good), some not clear parts or you are missing crucial things in the text, I will be glad for comments or emails from you. You can check the manual HERE

LANDSNAILS.ORG logo got updated


Thanks to my friend Max, the logo for LANDSNAILS.ORG has been redesigned. I think it looks great. What do you think? Do you like it? Of course, it is possible to use this logo also in unicolour black or white as the old logo, but the coloured version is the best I think. I will add this new logo to the e-shop and other places soon.

First egg from species Helicophanta magnifica Madagascar!


It is the biggest snail egg I ever seen. It is 36 mm big! It was not buried and it was just laying in the box. I hope it will hatch.

Ráno na gauči in TV seznam


Tomorrow (28.1.) I will a guest in the show Ráno na gauči in TV seznam in the morning from 7:00 to 7:45. I will present some snails and talk about them, but in czech.



I wish you a Happy New Year full of many healthy snails and other pets. I believe that also in this year we will all have many baby snails and also new species to our collections. There are still so many nice land snails species out there!

Achatina balteata infrafusca Cameroon


New species in the collection. New form of this species imported from Cameroon instead of Congo. From Congo population, snails from Cameroon have darker shell and body and also the shell is more granulated on the surface, but not so much as in the species Achatina iostoma. It is easy to care for this snail but captive breeding is rare. Imported adults are for sale HERE

Caracolus sagemon Gran Piedra, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba mountain form


New species in the collection. Beautiful form of the species Caracolus sagemon with attractive contrast coloration. Most prominent is thick black stripe on the shell. The bottom of the shell is completely black. Colour of the foot is very dark. This species is very attractive and not hard to keep. I is also partially arboreal snail so we can place it also in a higher tank with some branches for climbing. Babies are already for sale HERE
