Talking Apple Snails

Pomacea diffusa
Male found copulating with my female. I have about 6-8 males overall out of the original 40 I got. They haven't laid eggs yet but I'm not fussed about it to be honest as I have over 200 of these snails already.



Pomacea canaliculata
Female caught laying eggs in the dead of night. They are very discreet about this activity preferrign to lay eggs when no one can disturb them.

First egg caught.




Second egg caught.

Good luck with the new eggs!
I have recently started getting into the apple snails.
I made some of the Plaster of Paris for them, they like it, even seen my olive nerites sitting on the block a few times.
