Hello, I’m Pluto I started browsing the forums a month or two ago when I found my first three garden snails: Shelley, Speedy, and Arnold. They had somewhere around 6 egg clutches (!) within a month or so, so I assume they were fairly happy! I had to freeze a lot of eggs, though, but have kept three unnamed baby snails - 2 from Shelley’s first clutch, and 1 from Arnold’s first clutch. I also have two juveniles, one bigger and one smaller, named Rosie and Aloe. My 5y/o found Rosie and we decided to keep her because one of her eye stalks looked stunted (it has since become normal), and Aloe was found on, you guessed it, some aloe in my succulent drop-pot (where I put discarded leaves to propagate). I don’t know how she got there, and I mostly only kept her to see if she was still alive, but she’s here now!
It’s been quite a learning experience keeping these snails, one of both worry and joy, and I look forward to continue learning, worrying, and joy-making in this community.
