GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAIL [GALS](Archachatina marginata) FED WITH PAWPAW LEAF, WATERLEAF, PUMPKIN LEAF AND GROWER’S MASH

GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAIL [GALS](Archachatina marginata) FED WITH PAWPAW LEAF, WATERLEAF, PUMPKIN LEAF AND GROWER’S MASH

GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAIL [GALS](Archachatina marginata) FED WITH PAWPAW LEAF, WATERLEAF, PUMPKIN LEAF AND GROWER’S MASH By SAM et al ABSTRACT It is of vital importance to evaluate which feed materials will bring about optimum growth performance for domesticated snails. Therefore, this study aimed at evaluating the growth performance of Giant African land snails (Archachatina marginata) fed three different leaf materials and grower’s mash. Leaf materials used were pawpaw leaf (T ), water leaf (T ), pumpkin leaf…

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF HAEMOLYMPH OF THE GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAILS FOR UREA, CREATINE AND ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE IN ABEOKUTA, SOUTH WESTERN, NIGERIA

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF HAEMOLYMPH OF THE GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAILS FOR UREA, CREATINE AND ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE IN ABEOKUTA, SOUTH WESTERN, NIGERIA

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF HAEMOLYMPH OF THE GIANT AFRICAN LAND SNAILS FOR UREA, CREATINE AND ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE IN ABEOKUTA, SOUTH WESTERN, NIGERIA By SODIPE, O.G ABSTRACT A comparative study of the haemolymph of two genera of Giant African Land Snails (Archachatina marginata and Achatina achatina) for urea, creatinine and alkaline phosphate was investigated. Twenty (20) snails with an average weight of 248±15g forA. marginata andA. achatina were used for each species. The experiment was laid out in a 2 × 2…

ENZYMATIC OXIDATIVE STRESS RESPONSE OF SNAIL (ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA) EXPOSURE TO CHLORPYRIFOS ORGANOPHOSPHATE PESTICIDE TREATED CABBAGE (BRASSICA OLERACEA)

ENZYMATIC OXIDATIVE STRESS RESPONSE OF SNAIL (ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA) EXPOSURE TO CHLORPYRIFOS ORGANOPHOSPHATE PESTICIDE TREATED CABBAGE (BRASSICA OLERACEA)

ENZYMATIC OXIDATIVE STRESS RESPONSE OF SNAIL (ARCHACHATINA MARGINATA) EXPOSURE TO CHLORPYRIFOS ORGANOPHOSPHATE PESTICIDE TREATED CABBAGE (BRASSICA OLERACEA) By MUSA et al ABSTRACT Land snail is a non-target organism when pesticides are applied in the field. The present study used 60 growers edible giant African land snail Archachatina marginata of mean weight of 77.00±0.25g fed fresh cabbage Brassica oleracea as bait for the oral uptake of chlorpyrifos organophosphate pesticide at low environmentally realistic concentration of 1µM soaked for 1h, under laboratory conditions…

LAND SNAIL DIVERSITY IN QUARRY AND NON-QUARRY SITES IN ODEDA AND ALABATA, OGUN STATE, SW NIGERIA

LAND SNAIL DIVERSITY IN QUARRY AND NON-QUARRY SITES IN ODEDA AND ALABATA, OGUN STATE, SW NIGERIA

LAND SNAIL DIVERSITY IN QUARRY AND NON-QUARRY SITES IN ODEDA AND ALABATA, OGUN STATE, SW NIGERIA By ALADESIDA et al ABSTRACT Quarrying activities are known to have debilitating effects on the environment. The recent creation of a quarrying site along the FUNAAB-Alabata route of Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State, SW Nigeria has drawn fears of the effects this could have on biodiversity. The present study therefore appraised the diversity and abundance of snails in quarry and non-quarry sites…
