At what age do they become sexually mature? I have searched everywhere and can not find an answer. I have 2 adults that have had 7 babies now, but would love to know when the babies will become sexually mature. Anybody know?

Hello :) What species is this? Sexual maturity varies with species, regardless if they are of the same genus.

They are unusual snails, congratulations! I expect they will be able to reproduce by the age of at least 1.5 years. You've got a long wait! Haha :)
