Cool you MIGHT get little baby snails, which is very exciting! But it could also be full of duds. Pretty amazing to watch the process!

Females can lay eggs when it is biologically time, and if they are fertilized then maybe babies!!! And often it is not if it is a new momma snail. Mine got a couple duds / clutches and then (there was a male) babies!

You can watch them develop.

They like decent humidity to stay vital, and they breath air in the eggs, so covering them with water they will drown. Their gills develop by the time they hatch.

Don't clean the glass so there is plenty of biofilm for the babies, if there end up being babies!

Turbo hasnít had snail interaction since before I got her so she really has no reason to lay. Is this snails form of a period? Lol. Every time sheís laid eggs now (at least 4 clutches on the glass spread across 3 days or so) Iíve removed them but she keeps coming out of the water as if to check on them?
