キセルガイの飼い方と販売How to keep a snail





This time, it is a member of the snail, and it is named Kisel Guy because it resembles a smoke pipe (Kixel) used to smoke cigarettes in Japan in the past. I would like to briefly introduce how to keep Kiselguy.


It is said that there are about 200 types of selga in Japan, but depending on the type, the number of individuals has decreased sharply due to deforestation, etc., and seliga is prohibited in some regions. It is said that some of the quiel guys live from a few years to a maximum of 10 years. (It is better to check in advance whether it is a kind that can be collected.)


かなりの種類がいるみたいですが、ひっそりと個体数が激減している種類もいるって残念ですよね。(It seems that there are quite a few types, but it’s a pity that some types have a sharp decline in population.)




What you need for breeding are insect cases with lids, costume cases, tappers (things with small holes), mulch and garden soil, cardboard, newspaper, fallen leaves, weeds, dead grass, driftwood, bark chips, coco chips, Brick/concrete blocks, spray, coral stones and shells, food (fallen leaves, weeds, hay, vegetables, fruits, goldfish food, egg shells, coral stones, etc.)




Since it is easy to escape, mortar soil and horticultural soil are spread over insect cases and clothes cases with lids, and leave leaves, weeds, dead grass, cardboard, bark chips, coco chips, etc. to make it a moist environment. It’s convenient because it keeps the humidity around.


It seems that it is relatively resistant to dryness and high temperature, but it disappears naturally when such an environment continues for a long time, so when the soil becomes dry, give water with a mist spray, and in the summer when the temperature becomes high it is a cool place. Let’s raise them.


Since it gets hot and humid in the summer, if you put a fine net instead of the lid or keep it in a cooler room, you can reduce the mortality.




Food is basically grown on fallen leaves, dead grass, and weeds. They also eat vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers, cabbage, watermelons, fruits such as bananas, and turtle food. In an environment where the humidity is too high, molds and flies are likely to occur, so it is good to give a lot of fallen leaves, weeds, and dead grass.


As with snails and slugs, it needs calcium, so it’s a good idea to put coral stones, oyster shells, and egg shells. I also eat concrete blocks, so you can put them in. Depending on some kinds, it seems that some moss oysters eat moss, bark, mushrooms, etc., but relatively easy-to-see and familiar selga can be used as fallen leaves and weeds, hay, vegetables, fruits, turtles and food for ornamental fish etc. I think.


You can eat anything. They also eat egg shells, crab shells, and shrimp shells, so they can handle waste that can’t be treated by earthworms, so they’ll be useful in composting.


It seems that different kinds of foods are eaten, so it is a good idea to give them various vegetables, fruits, moss, and weeds. Also, give food of ornamental fish of plant origin, and I think that it is preferable to eat it.


Temperature: Below 35 degrees



The diseases that are prone to suffer are unknown. Pay attention to dryness and high temperature and humidity in summer, and keep them in a well-ventilated and cool place where the indoor cooler works.



It is hermaphroditic and can breed if there are 2 to 3 animals. Although it depends on the type, the temperature that is suitable for breeding the common selga chinensis is 20 to 30 degrees Celsius, and if successful, you will naturally be able to discover small chelates.


You can lay a young shellfish in the uterus and raise the young shellfish with the same food as your parents.



Depending on the type, you can collect in trees in parks, residential areas, concrete blocks, mountains, etc. There are some ceremonies that are protected by the sharp decrease in population, and if collected, they may be punished, so if collecting them, is it okay to collect cerella, please check the website of each prefecture, etc. Please give me.


This blog describes the breeding method easily, so the written contents may not always guarantee long-term breeding. There are many other blogs and homepages that can be used as references, so please try to breed the kissing oyster after referring to them.



You may want to keep them, but don’t let the creatures from other areas escape to the outdoors. Breeding is not difficult either, so if you let it escape to the outdoors, you will be able to breed. Living things kept as pets such as tropical fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects are often designated as specific alien species.


If you are designated as a specific alien species, you may not be able to do it even if you want to raise it, so please take care until the end so that you will not let it go. If you can not raise it, ask someone to pick it up.



Thank you for reading to the end.
