We have been studied the effect of two diets one the growth of the Helix aspersa Muller during the juvenile stage under laboratory conditions. Diet I consists of commercial layer’s mash. We used ten lots of forty animals of 0.34 + 0.05 g, assigning five to each diet and keep them during the 6 first weeks of life in the laboratory conditions described by Perea et al. (2003) and Garcia et al. (2004). The results show that the diet with forage (II) presents low growth rates (81 mg), high… Expand
