Snail Eggs.... I think.


When we were out on our hike the other day, we scooped up a few minnows and a few water snails. I've been letting T2 keep them in his room by his bed. "Don't get too attached to these fish!" I say. "We took them out of their environment, and they will probably die." So we put them in a fish bowl and we've been feeding them tropical fish food. I've seen the fish eat but the snails eat like crazy! Now look what we have!

T2 thought they might be fish eggs but with some research, we now believe they are snail eggs. Apparently, snails lay eggs like crazy. Interesting, no? I can't wait to see what develops!
