Japanese Land Snail Shells - 2.5 - 3cm Openings
Japanese land snail shells of the Achatina genus, commonly known as fairy snail shells, are a lightweight and easily mobile option for our crabs Incredibly popular with the often picky violas, they are also taken by PPs, strawberries, "Es" and other species. The D shaped opening means that measurements vary a little compared to round ones and smaller seeming sizes can still fit crabs that otherwise need much larger turbos.
Approx 2.5 - 3cm opening, dependent on the shell. Please note the opening shape of these shells is long but narrow compared to round openings such as turbos and may come up smaller when worn. Shells are selected at random from stock.
Images demonstrating where the points of measurement are taken on the shells can be found by scrolling through each listings images. If you are unsure after viewing these please feel free to contact me for assistance.
Some keepers choose to boil shells before use, this may however impact on their finish. All our shells are cleaned before sale. A quick rinse before use in clean marine salt water may help encourage crabs to investigate them faster.
Shells are a natural product and as such may contain growth lines or other imperfections. Please allow for monitor variation impacting on colour and differences in human measurement.
