I really love my snails. I love them so much.
LAST snail post today –I promise! Today as I finished tank cleaning, these two ended up climbing onto my hand. They took their sweet time.
Everyone was pretty happy, having a clean home again, as well as pumpkin, kale, romaine lettuce, carrot, cauliflower and cuttlebone. ^_^
Not in order of date taken, but here are some cute baby snail photos! They are growing really well. My final number is 16. They eat voraciously. I intend to keep all of these for the rest of their slimy little lives (and not breed any more.)
I did say I had a bunch of snail stuff to post! Here’s some video for good measure:
I haven’t posted much about my little collection of West Indian Bulimulus and Asian Tramp snails. These were all taken from the sidewalks near my home. They are everywhere —a real invasive species for sure! Also, the only snails I can find near my home. I have seen empty, bleached shells of Brown Cuban snails, but no live snails other than these little guys. I’m not sure yet if I will keep them or ultimately release them, as I do prefer larger snails.
Here are some photos of them in their current setup.
They’re very cute little guys, I honestly just fear losing track of them when cleaning, or not being able to keep track of their egg-laying.
I still have a few snail posts to make but I want to sort them by subject a little. That’s it for this one!
My efforts to provide a feast of nutritious food, spring water, and a clean tank, are just not appreciated.
They were both trying to get to the cucumber, it didn’t end well. I didn’t film the fall (no one got hurt) but I filmed a bit of the climb:
It’s a happy day, my new milk snails (otala lactea) are here!
It’s three of them, and so, so beautiful. I’m so happy to have some variety in my tank other than just my Helix Aspersa/Cornu Aspersum.
And a little video for good measure:
This is sooo exciting!! I went to Pet Supermarket today and got a few new goodies for the tanks, on sale! The castle is the best and my favorite!
I also got two logs, a plant, a new little lagoon, a cave and a bridge. I can’t wait to set all this up!
I am also nearly done with a huge commission that I should be posting momentarily. It’s a good day so far!
Just a baby on some lettuce, enjoy.
