Who's Rex I hear you ask?

Well any regular reader would of heard me mention him before and maybe seen a photo or two..

... Well Rex is our pet... Can you guess what kind of pet he is?

He's not a Dog , not a Cat and he's not even a goldfish.. We don't even know if it's a he or she!

It's one of the easiest pets to look after.. We hardly ever have to clean it out, only needs a squirt of water now and again and it lives on lettuce and cucumber!

Rex lives in a tank but also lives in a shell and no he's not a tortoise.

Yes Rex is a snail, but no ordinary snail... He's a GIANT African Land Snail.

When we first got Rex he was tiny , smaller then a normal garden snail.
But now he's huge! Give it another year and he will be as big as our hands! :)

    My 21 month old is obsessed with garden snails (fortunately for her, our garden is packed with them!), she would absolutely LOVE a giant snail!
