Wow that site does have amazing pictures! Iíll try to get Turbo out of the shell again tomorrow, I didnít want to stress them out because theyíre very shy and donít like coming out on command! Thank you!!

Sexing mystery snails!

I thought most snails possessed the capability of being asexual therefore being female /male at the same time kinda?

As far as I know, (donít quote me for sure) mystery snails cannot reproduce asexually.
