So little Phyllis is now 2 1/2 months old and she's growing slowly!! Bless her she's such a cutie!
I've tried to take a picture from every angle,so you can see the odd shape of her shell,her bottom whorls have stopped growing so they look all compact and squashed together,so it's going to be very interesting to see how the rest of her shell will actually grow and fit in with the rest of it!?
Watch this space...........

So this is the latest addition to my snail family...
Meet Godzilla, he's an Achatina Iredalei,or sometimes known as the Albino land snail or the Golden Land snail.
I'm guessing he's about 2 months old,going by his size and I have only got the one of this species,as they are the only land snail to give birth to live young instead of eggs.So the Iredalei population could get rather out of control with 2 of them.
He's also my early Christmas present from my boyfriend!! Lucky me... :) x
