Snail Babies!!

They’re Snails! They’re babies! They’re snail babies!

I don’t know where they came from – my snails haven’t laid any egg clutches, there hasn’t even been any hot snail-on-snail action, but there’s babies!┬áThe snail stork must have made a wrong turn…

    Actually they aren’t baby apple snails, they are a ‘pest snail’ species Bithynia tenticulata, aka faucet snails. They look like miniature Pomacea snails and don’t reproduce too fast so they aren’t as bad as the planorbids or physas.
    Pea-sized is their adult size.
