How many snails will you need when you first begin?

70. If you are using small snails like those you have seen on pages 8 and 9 in this booklet, you will need more snails to begin.

72. With a pen of 5 x 5 metres (25 square metres) you will need

• 150 snails if you use the small kind (6 for each square metre)

• 25 snails if you use the large kind (1 for each square metre).
