So Many Eggs

How do they all fit in there? How does she have enough room for so many eggs inside her shell, without totally displacing her own body?

Snails: bigger on the inside than they are on the outside.

Snail Baby Graduation

A cupfull of snail babies (pea-size to marble-size) get released into the grown-up snail tank.

Where’s AppleSnail.net at?

It’s been a full week now since the website AppleSnail.net went down. I’m experiencing withdrawl. I need my snail-based chat fix.

Other people have noticed it is absent too – there are threads at Fishlore and Arachnoboards asking after AppleSnail.net. I don’t actually frequent either of those places, but my desperate Googling for AppleSnail.net related news found me those threads.

I miss all the regulars on the forum. I miss reading and talking snail exploits.

This morning when I woke up, I found one of my snails slowly sliming its way across my livingroom floor! I was shocked. Who can I tell about that? Where can I share pictures of baby snails?

I hope Applesnail.net comes back soon. I hope it’s not a permanent problem.

If not, I wonder if there’s a way to hook up with all the people from there? Like an emergency-backup forum for staying in touch?

Bunch o Babies

I hatched out a new clutch of snail babies on the weekend. Looks like more ivories and goldens. Right now they’re all roaring around a little 1-gallon mini tank I sat on my desk so I could keep an eye on them. They’re cute, zooming around like wee little bumper cars, all in a rush to get somewhere, but they’re all going in different directions. At least, until I put some food in. A bit of algae wafer and it’s all down to business.

Snail Milk!

It’s not FDA approved. For anything. Ever.

Seems Like There’s an App for Everything…
