Snail Eggs Surprise

A week or so ago, Spark threw a minnow trap down in the creek in the swamp.  All he caught was a bunch of snails, about 30, which have been living in a almond container on the kitchen counter.  They have been interesting but I thought before they died and started to stink, or at the least the water turned into a big bacteria breeding mess, they should go back to the creek.  Spark brought them down to pour them out and made a pretty cool discovery.  The snails had not been as inactive as they seemed, they had been busy laying eggs on the side of container. 

There are five clumps like this one which we hope will hatch and we will have baby snails.  We will see in a few weeks!

Congratulations! They must have thought they found the perfect environment to raise a family. Can't wait to see the new snail babies!

Peace and Laughter!
