Thanks guys I would love to see a leucistic. He may be albino, his eyes are red.

Ryan, congrats! Do you breed them for your monitors or as pets?

Yness, these guys can get up to 5 ", you can actually see in the second picture where his growth started with me. If there is a ridge in the shell, it means that's where growth has stopped. This usually happens because of being in transit to pet stores and what not.

I think that Giant African Land Snails are the biggest, getting up to 8". I would really like to get one. Apparently, they don't need a mate to lay fertile eggs. Can these be fed to monitors like the apple snails? I'm curious because they lay like 100 eggs at a time and I doubt that I could find homes for them all. I could maybe sell them as feeders as well.
