When I found the first egg clutch, my reaction was “Yay!” but by the fourth, it was more like “Oh, crap…”
I’m going to have to start destroying egg clutches, I don’t have the resources to raise several hundred babies. Still, I’d like some coloured ones – the first two clutches produced nothing but gold / light coloured snails. And this newest clutch does look ‘darker’, making me wonder if it was perhaps laid by one of the other snails.
On the left is the third clutch, now 10-days old. On the right is the fourth clutch, just laid last night.
