    Hi. Thanks

    Its said that some rhacodactylus could eat snails in the wild... snails have calcium, proteins, fat etc. Its and interesting point to speak about... But sincerely, I have no Idea if maybe species of Placostylus can be hunter by giant rhacos... Any way, they are a good suplement of calcium and proteins...

    Thanks so much for share the video.

    Alberto.

    I know Yuri. Here in spain, our friend Jess, that keep a long family of rhacos, that you know, said me that use to offer snailsto his rhacos... All of them accept and eat them...

    I never offered snails for mines, but Im going to try to make some pictures of this future moment... Maybe start with my pair of thachyrhychus and my trio of leachianus Nuu Ana/ Nuu Ami (I think ( I read) in this surrender little island of pine island could be posible leachianus eat crabs or other marine crustaceans ???)

    regards!!

    (great post you linked)

    No, I use just wild cought snails because sure that just wild snails have enough active microelements. Yes, I know that it is little bit risky to get parasites but I never hed this problems before.

    We have given snails to our Rhacodactylus but they never eat it. We just started a colony again, so we will try it once we have little ones again.
