MY

SNAILS

 

ACAVIDAE
 
 
 

Acavus haemastoma haemastoma - dark F2

My first members of the Acavidae family, I consider them one of the most interesting species in my collection. In July 2017, I have added 2 more snails to the breeding group from a different source to improve the genetic variability (yes, I believe that inbreeding can cause damage even in snail breeding.

 

GENERATION: F1 + F2

ORIGIN: Mirissa, Sri Lanka / Koggala, Sri Lanka

CURRENT SIZE: 4,5 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 4

Acavus haemastoma haemastoma - light F2

We got this guy to complement the two older dark friends. In July 2017, I have also added 2 more unrelated light snails to improve the "genetic material."

 

GENERATION: F1 + F2

ORIGIN: Mirissa, Sri Lanka / Koggala, Sri Lanka

CURRENT SIZE: 4,5 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 4

Oligospira waltoni F1

These guys are my boyfreinds the super most favorite - he named them Walter and Walter-scare face (this one went through a stress period and it resulted in a big scar on his shell). 

 

GENERATION: F1

ORIGIN: Deniyaya, Sri Lanka

CURRENT SIZE: 4,5 cm

QUANTITY (pcs): 2

Helicophanta ibaraoensis F0

A new addition to the helicophanta group. They are doing great and seem to be less picky eaters compared to their magnifica relatives... I have seen them mating but have not found a single egg so far :)

Helicophanta magnifica F0

I bought 4 of these beautiful snails in 2015 and 2 more at the beginning of 2016. I hoped to increase the chances of offsprings. So far nothing. To my great surprise they love Czech forrest mushrooms more than anything I tried so far. Recently I have lost one :(
