Like many other snails, they move with the help of strong muscles and use secretions to crawl over rough surfaces. They move slowly with an average speed of about 1mm/s.

According to BP, fire snails are difficult to live in captivity because they prefer to survive in very cool and humid conditions. Humidity in the Malaysian town of Tanah Rata is 79%. In order for a snail to grow, it needs a good source of calcium in its diet and environment.
