    How long do they tend to run about/walk for? I was going to walk it twice a day.
    Well we have a smallish piece of grass (maybe about 40m long and 10m wide) across the road that we let her out on about twice a day. We also take her for a longer walk once a day - after the longer walk (about a 20 min walk) she is so tired, she tends to sleep for about 4 hours straight after

    The only high maintenance thing about them is that when they mature you'll have to turn the soil every few days to check for eggs. They lay 100s of eggs at a time and these need to be frozen to kill them and then disposed of carefully, otherwise the giant snails can get into the environment and destroy the local wildlife.

    Other than that, it's just a ventilated tank, a heat mat for the winter, a spray bottle to keep them humid and cuttle fish bones so they get calcium. Not high maintenance at all, you can just chuck leftover fruits and veggies in there and they'll be happy as larry.

    Sometimes I leave the lid off the tank and they don't even try to run away.

    They're super cute and actually have quite quirky personalities. They're fun to keep as pets!
    I find the idea of keeping snails as pet a little odd! :lolwut:

    Haha it's weird because in the house he's like a perfect dog literally, doesn't beg, listens to commands, behaves really well but outside he's literally like a different dog. He tries to go for EVERYTHING and I can't even control him he literally takes me for a walk ! Haha I look such an idiot when I walk him
