Meet Gary

27 posts in this topic

I realize there is probably a copyright on the name "Gary" for a snail. Oh well. :)

Meet Gary my Japanese Trap Door Snail. I am not sure if these are also referred to as "Pond" snails but I think they might be.

His shell is two inches long.

My LFS guy guaranteed he would not fit in the mouth of any fancy goldies I might have. :rofl

Gorgeous!

Thank you very much. :D Being that I have not had a snail before, I guess he is kind of handsome in a snail sort of way. :blink:

You are true. :D

My chances of ever having enough space to hold one of those monsters is 0 to none. :rofl

It is neat isn't it?

Gives him a sort of prehistoric look.

He is cute isn't he? I love his algae coat as well. It does give him character. :D

There are actually only two pics there. I think what you might be seeing is the wood stand the tank sits on and the bottom black frame of the tank in that 2nd pic. :)

Nice to meet you Gary. :) You are one big snail.

You should now take another photo of him with more of the tank showing.
