It is necessary to lodge a snail to an akhatin in an aquarium or a terrarium with height of walls not less than 40 cm in which the warm humid climate is supported. Necessary humidity of air can be created by means of a spray: snails pinch water drops from walls and thus receive necessary moisture. Optimum temperature for snails - 25-28 degrees, but insignificant fall of temperature for akhatin is not critical: at the room temperature they are simply less active.

It is possible to give them bits, cleanings and scraps - they and will not disdain them. It is better to alternate different types of food because the akhatina can conceive a liking for a certain product (especially to bananas) and will refuse to eat all the rest.

By the way, the snail eats exactly so much, how many for her it is necessary, and does not touch food, harmful to it therefore difficult to poison her. At a diet of a snail of an akhatina there has to be a calcium, necessary for a sink, in the form of chalk or the crushed egg shell.
Snails of an akhatina show activity in a night-time, in the afternoon they usually bury in soil and sleep. If conditions in a terrarium adverse, the akhatina can hide in a sink, "be corked" by means of a stopper from slime and for a long time fall asleep. This feature of snails akhatin can use if you go to holiday and to you there is nobody to leave the pet. The snail of an akhatin can oversleep in the sealed sink about two months without prejudice to health. To wake a snail, it is enough to water of her with warm water. But consider that after awakening it will be brutally hungry.
