Baby Snail Surprise πŸŒβ“

So uh, something extremely weird happened last night…

Last night, I opened the baby tank door to feed the baby snails some broccoli, when a tiny shell fell out. Looked like an Aspersa baby shell. I thought maybe one of my baby Aspersas got stuck in some tiny hole or corner of the tank, and died from hunger. But when I looked at the shell (which was a tiny bit harder than shells at this age normally are but still definitely a baby shell, barely over newborn size) something told me there might be life in there. I put it in the tank to see if it moved by the morning.

Well lo and behold, I found it on the broccoli, but still in the shell. I thought maybe it got stuck to one of the bigger babies, and dragged there during feeding. It being alive and getting there by itself just made no sense. But then… I misted it, and…

Surprise Snailio Iglesias! This makes 100% zero sense at all. Where did he come from. Was he in the broccoli bag? Seems unlikely, it was in the fridge. Was he one of my own baby aspersas that slept and just didn’t grow during that time? Makes the most sense but still should be dead.

The world may never know. I’ve isolated him so he can be safe until I see if he grows!
