Hello! So I have 4 glass snails, I have a few questions.
One is a lot bigger than the other 3, shell and body wise, does this mean he’s older?
All 4 of them really only eat cucumber, lettuce, and kale. I try to feed them cherry tomatoes, baby carrot, broccoli, peach, and grape. But they never seem to eat those, is there something wrong with them?
how do I encourage them to mate and lay eggs?
thank you if you provided any answers! It’s much appreciated.
I don't think size necessarily correlates to age. As far as I'm aware, there's no reliable determination of age in snails. Their shells become thicker around the mantle when they reach sexual maturity, but aside from that it's hard to tell.
I don't think anything is wrong with them because of that. But cucumber and lettuce are both low in nutrition, so it's probably a good idea to keep trying to vary their diet. I hear grating or slicing food very finely can help tempt them.
If they think their habitat is suitable, then they are more likely to lay eggs. But it's not a given, they will only do it if/when they want to. So just make sure they're happy and well-cared for!
