Sutton's African Giant Snails

Very exciting week for life skills and Sutton pupils. We have kindly been donated 3 African Giant land snails.  Doris Morris and Boris. Doris is 5 months old and is already 7cm the other two are 5 weeks old and do not even measure 0.5cmyet. They are extremely interesting creatures and the children are having fun learning and caring for them. I don't know how I will keep up with the food consumption when they are fully grown adults as they are eating us out of house and home. This could be up to 30cm long... only time will tell.
