New species Achatina schweinfurthi semifusca Congo in collection


Achatina schweinfurthi semifusca is a very big form of Achatina schweinfurthi with light brown striping on the white background. Half of the last whorl is brown. Adult older snails are losing these brown markings and are usually totally white. This subspecies is more problematic after arriving in captivity. Especially old adult snails have lots of problems with captivity. This snail was probably not bred in captivity yet. Imported adults are available HERE



I wish you a Happy New Year full of many breeding successes. A lot of new things for this e-shop are on the way. I hope you will like them and you will come to visit also in the year 2020.

New species Archachatina sp. Calabar, Nigeria in collection


I was not able to determine species of this snail from genus Archachatina. It is a small and elongated form which can resemble Archachatina porphyrostoma in appearance but last whorls are red and columella too. It looks like that this species would be great in captivity as this snail is eating all food offered. Also, I had no loses among snails imported from nature. Imported adults are available HERE
