This is basically where you will be keeping your snails. Depending on the kind of snail you would be rearing ( we would discuss the species of snails later, be at ease) you must provide a decent, clean, nonacidic, too dry, or swampy area for your snails. Preferably, a sandy-loamy land is the best place for rearing your snails. It is there, they would lay eggs, renew shells, and rests on.
Provide a well-shaded environment for your snail to ensure they are free from sunlight. It is advisable that you provide places under the banana, mango, or pineapple trees to ensure coolness.

Block the environment with a tiny net that would protect them from rodents and predators which might insist on killing your snails. Avoid excess wind or sunlight as it dehydrates your snail and prevents them from growing.


While looking forward to the kind of snails you can reach out for. There are numerous kinds but the best I would recommend is called Achatina Achatina which is mostly found in West Africa and present in Nigeria, they are fatter and heavier, egg layers, and equivalently red-brownish in color.

Don’t forget there are two main sources for your snail. One from the bush, the other from the market. But the most healthier are from the bush embedded with natural habitat. No matter the case, make sure you get the best!


There isn’t much problem when it comes to feeding. Local green leaves, plantain, pineapple, and banana could be given a chance. Start feeding the numbers you can gather and start enjoying the long-awaited patience, yes! It is patience, they are what you must have to grow them.

After surviving in growing and marketing your snails, be sure your account balance in this recession time would change from three digits to eight! Cheers as I look forward to your testimonials!
