Apple/mystery snails vary. 100-200 eggs can be in a clutch. How many are viable and how many hatch are completely seperate issues. I had my snails lay a clutch about a month ago, and hatch about two weeks ago. Be prepared. You may want to crush part of the clutch now, depending on how big it is. Mine was about an inch and a half to two inches long.
I figure I have 75 or more baby snails. And I had maybe half of the clutch hatch.
Some pictures, the first is what the clutch looked like when I broke it open. Then one of the baby snails on my finger (better resolution than the thumb nail pic. Then the snails in their temp home. And if I can get it uploaded, a picture of them after two weeks.
Canas vs Brigs. True Cana/apple snails are illegal to own/ship in most states now, these are plant eating monsters and are highly invasive in native waterways. People keep them but they probably shouldn't. The Brigs are the nice small guys. O.o Posted via Mobile Device
Kind of confused. If you are in the UK apple snails aren't illegal, lol. But you probably have mystery snails.
There are 2 common species in the trade, Pomacea diffusa, mystery snail, and Pomacea canaliculta, apple snail. Posted via Mobile Device
