Anyone who says don't take is an idiot... Theses guys aren't hard to take care of. I use to own 20 snails before I left the game a year ago. What's hard is getting bee hives for their honey. Once you have a hive and sap collectors. It's a piece of cake (no pun intended)
Lastly DO NOT GO FOR ANYTHING LOW LEVELED! Just like another wrong person said. Low level is very bad. Go for 110 or greater as it's food will be much higher and that means less feeding of cakes. Mine were so high, I didn't need to feed but ever 10 days or more. So worth the investment.
Lastly, like someone else said. Theses guys are really good at escape. Far worse than dung Beatles 😅 Dino leash works fine for me. Though tried wooden cages in the past and they got out. So either weigh down or dino leash down on the lowest setting (depending on how many snails you got)
So in the end. A worthy investment period. Just a pain on the honey...
When tamed, the Achatina can produce Achatina paste, an alternative to cementing paste, passively when on wandering. You could also collect it when they are moving, their paste/slime will be on the ground shaped in a similar feces ball.
