Something kind of exciting happened right before bed! Well, after bed… 🤔 After Christopher and I had our anime time, and I was off to sleep, I had to quickly take care of the snails first. I left it for after anime so I wouldn’t be late to bed (in the end, I didn’t make it anyway). 😒
When I was doing that, I caught two Cuban snails in the middle of mating!
Now, of all my snails, the Cuban ones show the most nocturnal habits. They’re first up quite late at night and back to sleep very early in the morning. I don’t see much of their activity. They’ve been laying lots of eggs, but I never saw them mate until now! 😮 So I had to take a photo, and some video too, because it looks rather different than my other snails:
The video is no different than the photo really, as my friend Jennie pointed out, but I wanted to post all I had since the photo wasn’t very good. 😅 The video isn’t any better, though…
It’s the same process and all, but their parts aren’t the exact same shape/size. It’s not VERY different but just enough that I found it very fascinating to catch. Now I’m sleepy and it’s past 12:30am so I need to go to bed if I am going to take my morning walk. 😬
