    I have several different species of pet snails and slugs. I am hoping there are others on this forum that have pet snails or slugs so we can exchange information about our pets and have our say about them.

    I will start by giving a list of the pet snails and slugs I have.
    Snails: Cepaea nemoralis
    Cepaea hortensis
    Pleurodonte Isabella
    Discus rotundatus
    Oxychilus alliarus
    These are all land snails. I tried keeping water snails but was unsuccessful.
    Slugs: Limax maximus: Leopard slugs
    Deroceras agrete
    Arion Subfuscus

    A question if anyone knows. If your snails are getting enough calcium for their shells yet a few of them have dull shells is it safe to rub a bit of olive oil on the shell?
