About this book

The first comprehensive field guide to the snails and slugs of any part of Sub-Saharan Africa, with descriptions and distribution maps for over 280 species. It is a book not only about shells, but about living animals, and their biology, behaviour and conservation. Although snails and slugs still tend to be viewed by the general public as little more than slimy garden pests, this book demonstrates convincingly that they are fascinating components of South Africa's unique natural heritage.
