    Hi everybody! I’m Bob and I am the famous Wilverley Giant african Land Snail! I am going to tell you about some of the best facts about ME!:
    * Firslty, my Latin name is:Achatina Fulica.
    * Secondly, I love to eat fruit and veg including:Cucumber,lettuce,peppers,greenbeans,tomatoes and sweetcorn and CERTIANLY NO PASTA due to the fact it can swell my internal organs and may even kill me! My favourite treats are not what not what everyone thinks.( As in Brown bread and even cat biscuits!)
    * Giant African Land Snails,me, are known to eat up to 500 different plant species!
    * Surprinsingly, we do not have an official gender because we have both sex organs of each gender but we still need two snails to reproduce (make babies).
    *:Lastly, I am OLD! I can live up to 5-6 years or 10 years!
