Well, I had three snails. But apparently I missed some eggs somehow, and today I woke up and found lots of babies!! :-) A present from my snailies!
I swear I just checked for eggs, too. I think it was five days ago. My theory is that my snails didn't want to lay their eggs because I didn't have enough substrate, so they were close to hatching when they were laid. When I made big piles of substrate, the babies appeared in those piles just a few days later!
Anyway, babies! :-)
It's really hard to get good pictures of them because they're so tiny! They're adorable, though.
Congrats on your Snaily Xmas present, I got back a few weeks ago to find that the Cepaea hortensis and Cepaea nemoralis had been busy and left me a load of eggs that were well hidden n had hatched. Thankfully they a Native here so most of them will be released when the weather is warmer in the spring.
There great to watch n the Rug rats love watching them grow.
