Ramshorn Snail Timelapse

  1. Kill Switch Initiate Member

    Hello all

    Here is a quick time-lapse video I made of the Ramshorn Snail eggs that were laid in my Fry tank.


    The results while not perfect are quite interesting.
    Total time 5 days from first to last photo.
    Pictures were taken 5 min apart initially then at the end 30 sec
    Playback 40-50 fps
    All 12 successfully hatched - hatching size less than 1 mm(0.5 my guess).

    hope u enjoy

    That's really cool. I assume you had an automatic camera, so you didn't have to sit there for 5 days taking pics every few minutes? (sorry, I don't know anything about photography/video making!)

    Hi Pisciculus it was a webcam attached to PC with some nice software.
    so 80% automated. Biggest problem is keeping the camera/tank dead still for so long.

    That is great and what a neat subject you picked!

    I tried that with my cat on my bed ( but only 10 hours ) and he did absolutely NOTHING in that 10 hours. Still made me laugh.... :)
