Description: Large, white; distinguished from the various other, smaller, Achatinid snails in the area by its blunted shape, and massive white foot, folded along midline of foot when disturbed and only very rarely withdrawn into shell; suspected juveniles often largely pale brown in shell and flesh, also blunted, unlike the 'Achatina' type snails of the area which tend to fold their bodies top-bottom when withdrawing. Specimens here on fallen Jackfruit and site of old bonfire.

Description: Medium-large. Had assumed the bulk of these brown-fleshed snails at this site were Achatina, as size and form more-or-less continuously variable (as opposed to the blunter-shelled, white-bodied giants suspected of being Burtoa); suspect that this is not actually the case, regretting not having more photographs of the variation. Any help? Additional note - tortoises eat them. Which isn't saying much, because my experience of Bell's (Speke's) Hinged Tortoise was that they ate anything that moved, and some things that didn't, but they really go to town on these snails.
