Mystery Snail Trivia
Ok, here is the question. Those that know anything about them tell me the ages and if you can which are male and female from the pictures. I know which is which and which ones are older at least for the most part. I just want to see if anyone can guess. Just the large Mystery snails in the center, not the ramshorns.
(Trishfish, you have to wait for 2 days ;))
dont know much about snails but i cant help it. the one in the middle is a Donna, a chick. she is 1.2 years old, has six kids, right on top is Peanuts. cheerful and happy as can be. 1 year old. right next to hims is Garry. purple shell is obvious sign of gender confusion. 9 months old. did i get any? :D
Oh, sure! Discriminate against me!! :lol:
Alright Trishfish, it is all yours. No one else has guessed and I want to continue this thread.
Well the largets one is the male, the medium on above is the female who has been laying the clusters and the purple one is from Trish and is about 10 weeks old or so, thanks you again Trishfish.
I was wondering because I hope to be able to keep record of the purples to see which ones wind up being the largest and which ones wind up male or female.
I also thought it was odd because most of the things I had read state that the female is normally larger in which case I don't know if I want to see how big a female mystery snail could get!
i thought i remembered reading somewhere that mystery snails were hermaphrodites? meaning they had both male and female reproductive stuff
Nope, definately male and female.
That site gives some of the most reliable informaiton I have found about them yet.
