idiots guide but only covers the basics
on 3 March 2002
This I will admit is a good basic book for the first-time snail keeper. However it fails to go into enough depth to be truly informative and will not provide you with the info you need to give your snail the long life it is capable of. What it omits to cover is the fact that though snails are easier to keep than many exotics, they are still exotics and there are many many situations that it does not cover. As an experienced keeper who has at present 7 species of african snail, and who has been keeping snails for over 10 years, I can assure you that this book does not tell you everything you need to know. It is simply a very basic beginners guide.
