Hello. I have noticed a white patch on the back of my Achatina Fulica (Dusty). I'm getting worried about it. At first i thought it is respiratory gland but i need to be sure. Does anyone have an idea, what it could be? That would be very helpful. Thanks.
Yeah... I thought it's the reproductive pore too.. If it's a wound would have healed by now.. He's had it since I've had him (one month now). It doesn't seem to bother him though.. I'm just really curious.
Hello, I think that my snail might have a similar problem.
The story goes this way: About week and a half ago, I noticed that my snails are much less active and are not eating at all. At first I didn't undertake any action, because there were couple of rainy days here, so I didn't worry. But when the weekend came, I decided to check in on them in greater detail and gave them a bath. I noticed that one of the snails has part of the skin missing. I washed that wound with green tea and then again with water. What bothers me is that he is still not eating and the wound is getting bigger. I doubt that the other snail was biting it, since this one has been in the shell for quite some time. I also noticed that he lost weight, but is not retracting deeply in the shell. Also, I didn't notice any parasites on the snail, the area around this white spot seems to be clean. Do you have any idea what this might be and if I could do anything to make my snail better? Please take a look at the pictures, the first one was taken on Saturday, second and third one yesterday.
Thank you in advance for any help!
PS I am also wondering which species my snail is, although I doubt you can see it from these pictures.
