Good morning everyone! This morning the snails were more active. I saw them eating and moving around. Though for the life of me I couldn’t find one of them, I’m sure he’s somewhere though…
I’d been worried about their low activity level, going deeper into their shells and even covering them with that film. It’s nice to see them active today, but I also read that Helix Aspersa need to be dormant for like a month out of the year or something, basically hibernation, regardless of their environment. I’m not sure how true this is but maybe, as usual, the answer is not to bother them.
Something interesting for you all in the second picture. Those two snails mated. After mating, their 🍆’s go in each other and stay like that for a long time (sometimes 8 hours or so) and in the meantime the snails sleep. I tend to spray them more during this time so that they don’t dry out. 🙂
The eggs still haven’t hatched, I hope they do soon, I’m really excited about it… I’m also excited about a few deliveries of stickers happening between today and tomorrow. 🌈✨
Perhaps unsurprisingly with the isolation from Twitter and Instagram, I’ve been thinking about Megaplex being canceled a lot more. I’m really going to miss it this year. I miss my friends. There’s a lot of friends I already wasn’t getting to see often, outside of furry. And now, I won’t even see my furry friends.
I know nothing stays the same forever, and I’ll make new friends too. But man this year is hard in that regard. It is a bit lonely. I’m trying my best though!
