Diet of the Parktown Prawn


    The diet of Libanasidus includes snails, rotting plants and fallen fruit. They have also been observed feeding on dog food and dry oatmeal.

    Since their diet includes both animal and plant material they can be described as omnivorous. In most gardens where these insects are now found, the garden snail has ceased to be a pest, so interestingly enough, the prawn can be regarded as a useful pest control.
