BREEDING SNAILS – REPRODUCTION

Breeding Snails are selected and hold an official certificate proving the origin, variety and hygiene, all of which are essential elements to international trade.

Snails are purchased by our company only once during the first year of cultivation. In the mid second year the performance of our farm will peak and snail production will become sustainable.

 

 

 

REPRODUCTION

Snails begin to mate in late spring. All snails give birth since there are neither male nor female: Snails are hermaphrodites.

The Helix-Aspersa species does not have a particular month of reproduction. Reproduction mainly depends on climatic conditions.

During the birth period, snails dig a few millimeters of soil in order to place their eggs safely. After a period of 20 days, newborn snails come out on the ground.

Each snail gives birth every 15 minutes and completes the delivery in a time period of 25-30 hours.

Each snail gives 40 - 120 eggs within a diameter of approximately 3 mm.

Newborn snails carry a transparent shell and soon its size will increase if it feeds well.
