It's been FOREVER since I went here, but I'm finally back (and with some good news!)
(These are not the good news) As you might know, my brown snails, Choco, Cappuccino and Marble, died during 2018.
But (these are the good news), I have new snail goals for 2019: I decided to keep my snails anyway until they die! Rainbow and Lemonade are about 3 1/2 years old (is it old for snails?), Peanut's age is unknown, but she is pretty old, and Cupcake, Lemon and Berry are about 1 1/2 years old! All I need now is the motivation to take care of them before it's 10:00 PM. And I have just the thing: I might go "snail hunting" with a friend this summer (if everything goes well) to find other species such as Anguispira alternata! She lives close to a mountain, so it helps.
But, if it doesn't motivate me enough, I'll release Rainbow, Lemonade and Berry in the wild to get less eggs (the non-motivating part). Lemon is a Cepaea hortensis while the others are Cepaea nemoralis, and since I'm too attached to Peanut (she's my favorite) to release her while Cupcake is young, if the idea of getting other species isn't motivating enough, I'll keep Lemon, Cupcake and Peanut. This sounds reasonable, right?
Have a nice day!
