QBOXES are clear plastic boxes with push on lids that are ideal for storing stick insect eggs and for housing baby stick insects and caterpillars.

Liners for Professional Snail Centre XL

We have designed the Professional Snail Centre XL as ideal housing for large Giant African Land Snails (Achatina fulica). The clever base ventilation system and absorbent Liners prevents the awful gloop and dirty conditions that occur when snails this size are kept in tanks.

Giant African Land Snails are active in the Professional Snail Centre XL. You can easily see the snails sliding up the clear sides and resting under the clear roof. Place the soft Liner on the floor, this will help cushion the impact of a snail should it fall, thereby protecting its shell from being damaged. Replace the soft Liner as necessary. In hot weather, we recommend keeping this Liner wet because this helps to increase the humidity in the cage.

Place the food on the soft Liner. Giant African Land Snails eat assorted vegetable peelings; include as wide a range as possible because a varied diet promotes a patterned shell. Snails need extra calcium to help their shells grow and so rinsed out hen eggshells are ideal. Try to put large pieces of eggshell in the centre; do not crush it up.

Large Giant African Land Snails regularly tip over Water Dishes and so the yellow base of the Professional Snail Centre XL incorporates a moat which should be filled with cold tap water. The snails can not tip this up.

Two foil trays are supplied; these can be filled with vegetable peelings or, if you fill the foil tray with John Innes compost, or soil from the garden, the snails will bury their eggs in there.

You can access the Professional Snail Centre XL via the top lid.

You can dismantle the centre for easy cleaning.

The Professional Snail Centre XL is 57cm (22½ ") wide x 24½ cm (9½") deep x 31cm (12") high. The base tiles are 61cm (24") x 30½ cm (12"). The sides and lid are made from crystal clear strong PVC and the yellow bases are tough moulded plastic. The glossy white base tiles are easy to wipe clean. Giant African Land Snails like to group together and up to four adults can be kept Professional Snail Centre XL.

Professional Snail Centre XL is £45.00 each (includes the two foil dishes).
Professional Snail Centre XL Liners (pack of 18) are £9.00 per pack.
Special offer: Buy 2 packs of Liners (price £18.00) and get a third pack of Liners FREE!
The delivery charge is £9.95. If you are buying other items at the same time from us, everything can be sent together for just one delivery charge of £9.95.

GSC insect cage - flat packed
The GSC is our only flat packed insect cage, and it is easy to assemble and dismantle. It is a large cage, with a hinged lockable door. There is a clear plastic viewing panel in the door.

The GSC cage has a ventilated panel on the roof and three sides have a ventilated panel. The ventilated panels are made from very fine stainless steel mesh, so this cage can house very small insects such as whitefly and aphids. The cage is constructed with additional sealing strips to prevent tiny insects from escaping.

The GSC cage is made from galvanised steel and has a solid galvanised steel floor that is fixed to the sides.

Dimensions: Height 60cm, 23½", Width 60cm, 23½", Depth 60cm, 23½".
