  • Dinner time for the Mystery Snails

    I could not believe the onslaught when we dropped in a piece of zucchini into the snail tank! But, also puzzled why the full sized ones never took a bite that I saw.







    So, can anyone tell me what type of snails are on top? I dropped a couple in to let them grow. They are still smaller an 1/4 inch and are multiplying faster than rabbits.

      Really cool. That's what mine usually looks like when I drop it in. It's like a little piranha feeding frenzy on the veggies. After a while nothing is left but the weight.
