Giant African land snail may refer to two genera and three species within the family Achatinidae, a family of unusually large African terrestrial snails. they graze on leafy greens. They can live for several years and grow up to 20cm in length. The snails are most active during the night (they are nocturnal).All snails are hermaphrodites, which means that they have both male and female sex organs

This photograph was taken by Saurav, my son who is in Std 5 and told me """Papa tell all your JPG friends that Saurav has taken this shot"""" I am just conveying this message!!! Thanks for viewing!!!
