    My new pets

    So my sister unexpectedly left home on Monday evening leaving behind some animals that she (for whatever reason) didn't want to take to her boyfriends parents house. As she obviously didn't care aboutthem and hasn't contacted us to let us know if she wants them I have decided to take them on myself.
    So I present to you my new African Land Snails!!!















    There are 4 of them. When I took them out of her room on Tuesday night they wer in a bit of a sorry state. She hadn't cleaned them for a fortnight and their food was covered in mould. Lots of fruit flies in their container too so put them in the bath (they love having a shower) while I cleaned the container and replaced the soil.

    They're great fun although a little slimey!

    I was just thinking that, shouldn't they be in a tank about 1>2 X 2>3 feet?
    I own a dozy dog but to me that tank looks far to small.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Unusual pet but look pretty cool!

    They look bloody massive as well

    Surely a bigger tank is needed, but i am by no means an expert
