The 50...

    My mystery snail population recently exploded and one of my coworkers offered to take some of them. How do I transport about 10 snails to an office where they may stay for up to 8 hours. What's the best way to transfer them so that they don't get too hot/cold or crack their shells?

    Is This Snails Shell Growth Normal?

    I know this may not be the best picture to illustrate my concern but he's been sitting up there with his buddy for awhile so I can't really get a great shot.

    Shell Colours.

    What's the deal with my mystery snails shell? When I got him from the pet store he was all red and speckled... Now that he's getting bigger he's only got a small patch of red with speckles... Is it just new shell growth? I'm assuming he's turning the ivory colour he's supposed to be?
