Study the lives of snails by using Snail World to make a home for these little creatures. Although slow, snails have the ability to go up a slope at any angle, rest while hanging upside down and even climb incredibly thin stems! Be entertained by their amazing, acrobatic talents of climbing up the walls and even across the roof!

Snail World can house either land or water snails so pick your favourite and have fun! To use, simply collect some soil or pond water (depending on the type of snails you are collecting) and place the gravel (included) and soil in the clear, sturdy plastic bottle that is provided. The colourful six page instruction guide, complete with diagrams, provides information about collecting snails, what they eat and how to care for them. If you collect translucent snail eggs, you can watch as they move and develop before they hatch!

The clear plastic bottle allows you to watch as the snails defy gravity by moving up the walls and across the roof. The pipette allows for easy cleaning of the water if you have chosen water snails. Remember to look after them properly or release them back into the wild!
