Description

The Lissachatina Reticulata, commonly known as the Reticulated Giant African Land Snail, is among the largest terrestrial mollusks in the world. The albino variant, distinguished by its pale, near-white body and shell, makes it a highly desirable colouration. Albino Lissachatina Reticulata have smooth, glossy shells that are typically brown in color,  exhibiting light streaks or patterns. Its body is devoid of the usual dark pigments seen in the regular variant, giving it a translucent, milky appearance. Fully grown, an adult Reticulated Albino Giant African Land Snail can achieve a shell length of up to 20 centimeters (about 8 inches) or more, depending on factors like diet, environment, and genetics. Originally from East Africa, Lissachatina Reticulata prefers humid environments, which are crucial for their hydration and overall health. In their native habitats, they can often be found in forested areas, agricultural lands, and gardens. Due to their popularity as pets and their accidental introduction, they can now be found in various parts of the world, though they’re considered pests in many regions. These herbivores primarily consume a wide range of plant materials. In captivity, their diet often includes animal protein leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, and calcium-rich supplements, which are vital for shell development. Their beautiful appearance and relatively low maintenance care make the albino variant of Lissachatina Reticulata popular among exotic pet enthusiasts.
