Alfie the African Land Snail
Download the information sheet

I’m not very popular with farmers as I can eat a wide range of plants and will breed very quickly.

In America it is illegal to keep me as a pet s people often discard my many eggs into the wild. I’m considered a delicacy in Africa but if I’m not cooked thoroughly, you may get very ill.
