Phyllis..Jan 08

So here's Phylis at 4 months old...she's growing quite can see from the pictures that her whorles have stayed the same but the rest of her shell is growing quite normal.
Her shell is rather rough looking and has quite a rough texture compared to her siblings but despite her her little oddities,she's doing very well!!! :)

Fixed Shell...Super Fast!!

So i went to check on Olive this morning and I'm really amazed at what i saw!!!
Check out the super fast shell repair!!..I knew she would fix fairly quick but never expected it to be this fast,she only broke her shell 3 days ago and has already made a brand new piece to cover the hole!!!!! Excellent!!! :)

Broken Shell!

So look at what silly Olive did 2 days ago!!!
I opened the lid for feeding time and she decided to fall off the roof into the tank and knocked her shell on a piece of mopani wood that sits in there.....she's taken a right chunk out of her shell,but she didn't seem too concerned about the whole thing!! Lucky for snails,their shells can self heal as long they have a constant supply of calcium,which they have in the form of cuttlefish!
I'll keep updating Olives progress as she heals herself! :)
