My Mating Mystery Snails

A week after my Snail Party (where not a snail moved an inch) I have never seen them more active.

I’m not completely certain, but I believe that yesterday I watched Socrates and Pearl mating.  And, of course, I got a video.

I’ve read that when one snail is on the side of another like these two were yesterday, that’s an indication that they’re mating.  If they were Pearl will lay her eggs in a day or two outside the water on the top of the tank.

I’ll be watching to see if she does.

(That’s Jon reading a quote from Parker Palmer in the video.  It wasn’t planned, he just didn’t realize I was taking a video.  But it’s a wonderful quote and worth hearing, I think)
