So this post has been long in my drafts. 😬 I’ve had my new poms since August 4th, and despite all the grief with my many of my Helix Aspersa dying of mites, it’s really been a whirlwind of joy with these new snails —the biggest snails I can legally own. They’re no GALS, but, at roughly three times the size of an average Aspersa, they are my one dream snail that I can actually own, and my pride and joy for sure.
This is when I first woke them up and put them in their temporary container:
Very quickly they unfurled and began to eat voraciously. I had to replenish the food mid afternoon because it was just… gone. They practically aspirated it.
I couldn’t take enough pictures of them, so perfect they are… just look at their pretty shells and flowy skirts…
Perfection! ⚡️🐌✨Absolute perfection! 😩👌 There’s my finger to give you an idea of size. They are chunky boys. Err… hermaphrodites.
I have many more photos to share of them, but these are the ones taken the day they arrived and is all I’ll be sharing for now.
