I have two gold inca mystery snails. The keep climbing on top of each other. Is this fighting or breeding? Honestly i have no clue how you sex a snail so they are indeed a mystery to me.

Click on Anatomy in the menu on the left of the page in this link - it tells you how to tell the gender.

Privacy ? The least they could have done is do it in the bushes after dark instead of in the middle of the road in broad daylight. Darn exhibitionists.

Now thats all said in done i am not seeing eggs. well there is this white little beads at the surface of the water on the glass. i picked one up and its hard and gritty so im not sure its an egg.

the only realy problem is i dont know what else it could be. Its certainly not substrate.

mystery snails lay a cluster of eggs outside the water, usually on the cover glass. It is either pale pink or white and looks like small white balls stuck together in a cluster.

Privacy? Whut? Snails carry their home around on the back, so anything the rest of us are seeing, is basically happening with between the DOORS of their homes! SO, maybe we had better see it THAT way, and just not be sticking out nose in THEIR bidness! LOL (and yeah, I say they are mating... it is only PORN or SMUT if it turns you on- or disgusts you... I call it NMP)

Hey, look at our avatars. Most of us are fish and seeing snails going for it, well that floats my boat :)
