This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of the text in the official dossier. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game Achatina.
Wild: Found mostly in marshes and jungles, Achatina Limusegnis is a very slow, very non-threatening land mollusk. It might be the safest creature on the island to hunt and while it only provides a small amount of meat and chitin, an easy meal is always good on the island.
Domesticated: There is a very disgusting, but useful, fact about Achatina that causes tribes to seek to tame them: its secretions are chemically similar to the ‘Cementing Paste’ used by many tribes for building materials. Tamed Achatina naturally build up this slime over time, which can then be collected at the tribe’s convenience.
Known Information: Unlike nearly every other creature on the island, Achatina does not defecate normally. Instead, it secretes a thick sticky substance. Achatina leaves trails of this slime, but the trails are so thin that they crumble to dust quickly.
Achatina are one of the few truly docile species on the island.
Achatina are quite large for their genus, being approximately 60-90 centimeters (2–3 feet) tall when full grown. Their shells are very ornate with streaks of bright color and sharp ridges that provide, some, protection from the island’s predators. The vulnerable soft skin of the Achantina’s body can also be very colorful.
