Giant African Land Snail Hibernating

Arnie the Giant African Land Snail (Achatina fulica) Hibernating.

He is in a vivarium filled with damp potting compost.

Giant African Land Snails will go into hibernation if temperatures get too low

or a kind of summer hibernation called Estivation if conditions become too dry.
