Donna & Kebab at 10 Months....

So here's Donna And Kebab at 10 months old....Donna is just getting slimed on by a Jadatzi baby...
I weighed them both today and there is a huge difference between them still, Donna weighs in at just 15 grams!
And Kebab is racing ahead at 47 grams!
I moved them from the 3 foot tank to a smaller one a few months ago and since then they are doing really well and growing the best they have since i got them......:)

Rodatzi x Jade baby

So this little guy/gal is nearly 3 months old and is a cross between an Achatina Fulica Hamillei F. Rodatzi and an Achatina Fulica F. 'White jade' ........other wise nicknamed a Jadatzi!

So a rodatzi has a yellowish albino type shell and the Jade has a normal shell but with a albino with this little guy being a cross it should be quite interesting what he turns into!!
We're guessing he's going to look like a normal Hamillei this time around,but there's 3 of them,so when bred again they may throw out an albino bodied snail!?

Anyway for now him and his siblings (who are nameless at the moment) have a lot of growing to watch this space! :)

He's approx about 3 years old and measures 17cm in shell length....he's HUGE!!

So he's just moved into the 3ft tank with Jim and Phyllis the fulicas!
