Mystery snail cuteness

Am I the only one who thinks they are cute little buggers?

I like em..I didn't think they'd be so entertaining but mine is a trip.

I tried to put my signature but the ink wouldn't go through my screen.

I kinda think they're all cute in their own slithery way :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Haha yes! I don't have mystery snails, but I have nerite snails. Two of them, both male, named Miles & Cargo. :)

We had a few mystery snails a while ago, they used to climb up the side of the aquarium and then let go and just float elegantly down to the bottom... the "scientific" term for it is parasnailing or something... bahahaha. Funny to watch, gorgeous animals.

Apparently it's something they'd do in the wild to avoid predators... but even in closed systems they seem to do it just because. I could always imagine mine yelling "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" when they did it.
