    so here's my mystery snail, Zilla, riding the bubble curtain. My husband claimed she had done this a few days ago, but we got it on video this time. i ran for the camera the first time she did it, but wasnt fast enough. Then she climbed the wall and did it again, all on video this time. stopped tapin and she climbed the wall and jumped for a third time, i edited this one into the video. dont mind the music, we were watching tv while this all happened and the free editing required something to replace the original sound.

    i dont think this is problematic behavior, more of something for her to do in her day.....stop by the amusment park when the feelings right maybe. any thoughts are more than welcome!

    My snail used to do that frequently too. I had also posted a video awhile back ( called Gigantor rides the waves )
    It would drive me crazy because she would literally do this for hours!
    Finally a few times I stopped the filter, put her on an ornament and an hour later, she would be right back doing it!
    I used to have another one that loved the pre-filter intake sponge. I think she liked getting her "foot" massaged.

    I did add it, its something free from utube that made me laugh....seemed a good blue grass adventure. I had to add something or all the original audio couldn't be removed. We were watching Tv when this all happened and I didn't want that blaring, along with the dog going crazy.
