It is also effective in raising the helicid snail, Cornu aspersum, an ubiquitous species living beside H.
However, our results are in full agreement with the ones found by Bonnefoy-Claudet and Deray [22] on Cornu aspersum snails.
In this study, we tested the relationships between various measurements of body size and crawling speed in the terrestrial snail Cornu aspersum.
In this study, we examined the scaling relationships between size and speed in Cornu aspersum Muller, 1774 (formerly known as Helix aspersa), a terrestrial snail that crawls using direct monotaxic muscular waves.
1998), who successfully used a dehydrated diet for culture of Cornu aspersum (Muller 1774) (as Helix aspera (Muller); Pulmonata: Helicidae), Most of these techniques, while adequate for small-scale maintenance and culture, are not particularly conducive for large-scale culture, or experimentation under uniform conditions.
Parker (1937) then described it in members of Cornu aspersum (Milner, 1774) (as Helix aspersa), further noting that individual snails could alternate between adhesive crawling and loping, and that snails began to lope only after pedal waves characteristic of adhesive crawling had commenced.
