This species ( zebra - i am 90% convinced this is zebra because of the area from which it came in south africa and the structure of shell etc )
Needs ( based on locality they were found in ) Daytime temperature : between 25 - 15c Nightime temp : 15 - 8 ( Sometimes lower ) feeding : Romaine lettuce, sweet potato , sweet pepper , dog biscuits, i have tried fish flakes but have had no success yet ) humidity: 75 - 80 rh
often the night time temperatures are too high during summer so a cooling pad and ice packs are necessary, the snails head straight for them.
if you keep these snails or have more information please pm me or leave a message here

currently being kept in a tank within a tank. the lower tank having at all times two cooling blocks ( the ones used in picnic bags etc to keep food cool ) these need replacing every twelve hours to keep the temperature as low as possible and the snails active or they tend to aestivate.
