    Nice snails! Are you planning to breed them?

    Neritinas, Vittinas and Clinthon need special conditions to breed, I have never got babies ...
    ... but about the remaining I have a lot of them, they are easy to breed.

    Hola Javier,
    thank your for these nice pictures. It seems as if you have a nice collection of different species. Where did you find the name of the last species? It's rather new in the market (since one or two years as far as I know) and nobody found out the exact genus or species yet and published it.

    BTW, I would avoid the lead band. Lead is toxic and could harm them, especially if they move with their radula other it.

    hasta luego
    Robert

    I never knew snails can be so beautiful!
    Thanks for the pictures. Sadly it is hard to buy nice snails in Malaysia.
    Do you think those snails are available in tropical countries? May I can go catch some on my next trip in the wild.

    Many thanks,

    About the last snail, I have seen it here:

    Most of them are coming from tropical countries.
