Year 4 were very excited to have a new arrival in the classroom.We have all had a chance to hold the Albino Giant African Land Snail.His name is Arthur.
This is what Year 4 thought it felt like:
Connie- “It felt cold.”
Lily- “The snail felt slimy.” (We did were gloves though!)
Hallie-“The snail felt weird but it was fun at the same time.”
DID YOU KNOW?
The Giant African Land Snail is one of the largest terrestrial gastropods. A Giant African Land Snail can live for up to ten years. Giant African Albino Land snails are white and light brown but Giant African Land Snails are dark brown and a little light brown. They can only be kept in warm places and grow up to 30 cm. Arthur’s favourite food is cucumber! It’s shell is as hard as a rock!
