How to care for snails


  • In their natural setting, snails eat leaves, grass, fruit, and bark, but they will appreciate more variety and treats, such as moist, leafy, green vegetables. Experiment with different vegetables and fruits. A diet of lettuce alone is not recommended and could cause ill-health. Rotting leaves and natural foods will ensure that the snails grow strong shells and live healthy lives.
  • Provide a small bowl of water.
