Still Yet More Snails

Posted 2011.11.30 20.47 in Aquaria

It’s almost become a regular thing – last day of the month, time to take another bucket of snails to the pet store.

September 30th, I took a huge amount of snails – they were in all different sizes, too many to count, I guesstimated afterwards that it was as many as 300 snails. October 31st, I did count them, as I took 180 snails to the pet store.

And today, I counted them again. The number was 215. Here’s what 215 snails look like, in a 1-gallon tupperware dish:

These are all still out of the three clutches that hatched in July.

And there’s still about 60 more in my tanks, that were too small to take to market…
