I'm thinking about getting a pet snail. We just finished moving, so my parents are avoiding going out and buying anything, so I think I'll just try to catch one in our backyard.

To catch a snail, I'm gonna make a little snail trap with a small, circular plastic container, and I'll put a thin layer of water in it. Then I'll mix in a little bit of yeast, and sugar. Snails are attracted to yeast, so when I put it down, they'll come running to it. Hopefully, it will catch a snail by tomorrow.

I'll update here soon.

I just set the trap! I dug a small hole in our backyard, so the rim of the container is at the same height as the ground.

I think I'll name it according to what it looks like.

Yes, because catching a snail is a real workout.

I had a pet snail once. It died. xD I was 3.

That sounds like fun!

Just remember that most gastropods like to stay nice and moist. (Which you seem to already know)

One word of caution: Snails commonly carry a large variety of parasites so make sure another animal (or person) doesn't eat it.

Why don't you just buy an African Land snail? It'll save you the bother of catching one, and they're lovely!(if you can call a snail lovely..)

You'll need a quite big tank though.

Sea snails are the coolest, but they require (well most of them) a saltwater aquarium.

Dusty12 - Yeah, African Land Snails are pretty cool. The only problem is that they're illegal in America as pets because they're an invasive species.

No. But I did learn that is was really hot outside yesterday, because the sun made the yeast rise, and it became a yeast cake.

I'll probably just go to PetsMart today and see if they sell snails.

Snails are awesome!
Me and my sister used to keep quite a few. xD
Her snails laid some eggs and we had lots of little snails. (sure ate lots of lettuce xD But they were soooo cute!)
They loved eating lettuce and everyday we used to lay lettuce everywhere on the table and open their home so they could slowly make their way to their lunch. xD
I'm kinda scared of picking them up now because if I pull it's shell too hard, it might come off the poor snail. D:
It's happened before to my favorite snail. D: My brother wanted to hold Patch.
R.I.P Patch. @"

RichClub: I hope you can find the perfect snail. :3
They are really great pets.

Poor Patch... if you want to pick them up, you have to lead them on top of your hand, like with a piece of lettuce or something else that they like.

Although not technically a snail, my favorite gastropod is the nudibranch.
