At least 13 babies. And another one or more preggers again. I agree, the LFS is wonderful. Especially since it's getting the time of year it's harder to get these in.

Congrats!

I am worried about mine. I haven't seen her today and this morning the biggest PFR and 2 snails were eating part of a dead PFR.

Maybe a failed molt.

Eeep... I've had those before, sad face. Molting while berried usually loses the mother. Hope she's just hiding. Mine tend to hide a bit. Of course I'm shining my flash light on them trying to see lil eyeballs. Lol.

I have 2!

The original one and someone about a week behind I think -- the second is from the new batch I brought in for genetic diversity.

Thanks for your encouraging words!
