    If they are garden snails they might eat your plants! I would try doing a google image search, "land snails" and "garden snails", and try to identyfy it...if they are garden snails, remove them from your tank, but keep them, don't kill them, they are fun to raise.

    EDIT: OH, AND IF YOU REMOVE THEM EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT GARDEN SNAILS, KEEP THEM TOO, THEY'RE FUN TO RAISE

    Wow, love all the feedback, Thanks everyone

    Have looked for info on blue tounged skink and pretty much concluded would not mix in Anole Tank.

    Snails love fishfood----well that explains it, fishflakes are the secret ingredient in the cricket food, so there is always some in there.

    I will remove the snails as I see them and will keep an eye out for a population explosion. There still does not appear to be damage to the plants so I'm not going to fret and worry over it.

    Thanks again all, love the feedback.

    Don't worry about a population explosion. If they are water snails,their eggs cant hatch in a dry enviorment. And if they are land snails,simple-just look under things in the terrarium and remove their small,pearly white eggs. I would put them in the freezer if you don't want them to hatch.

    I wouldn't call the environment dry; more like moist--it gets a pretty good spray on a daily basis. I'm pretty sure eggs are hatching as I find them in all sizes from pretty small to still small but bigger (LOL). I find them pretty frequent, this AM there was at least 4 in the dish for crickett food, these guys are now history. It still doesn't seem to be a problem though, so I don't worry about them, just remove them as I find them. Thanks for the thoughts.
