Raising snails . Part III

What do snails eat?

Snails eat all kinds of vegetables, but preferably aromatic herbs as thyme and rosemary.

We may also give them wheat flavor.
Snail keeping conditions

The best conditions are:
- Temperatures of 68°F
- Relative humidity at 100%
- Nutrition rich in carbon hydrates and calcium.
- Neutral open soils
- Densities of 120to 240snails/m2.

Snails depend on the moisture of the environment due tot he permeability of their skin. Hence, they perform their activities when it is raining, or whenever the weather is humid.
