My snails LOVE iceburg lettuce. It is their main staple food. I offer many different foods, but they choose the lettuce instead. Why? Is this bad?
Hi kbanimallover13 , morningcoffee left a post on this thread Nov. 27 saying " I think the reason iceburg is often quoted as something that shouldn't be fed to snails is that it's thought to be very low on nutritional content". You should check out that post as there is more helpful information on it.
Snails love eggs! They might eat them raw, but I wouldn't advise it. Egg is an ideal medium for bacterial growth, and it could make them sick, especially if it sits in tank conditions for a time. At the very least, I imagine you'd have quite a smelly mess to clean up after they got through with it. The general rule is boiling the eggs before feeding. Oddly, my own prefer the yolk and never touch the whites. Why they're more interested in the fattiest part as opposed to the more protein-dense part is beyond me.
