Vivarium: Baby Snails

We discovered snail eggs a couple of weeks ago.  As you might expect, we’ve now discovered baby snails!  At last count we had at least fifteen babies–and they are teeny tiny.  In fact, they’re difficult to photograph.  But, I tried.  This is one of them crawling up a rock (see?)

And below, there is a photograph of one of them crawling up the side of the tank.  Look at those little antennae!

Today, while adding soil to our vivarium we discovered more snail eggs.  Hmmm, I wonder how many garden snails a person can maintain?  Will I be able to feed them all?  Will they just keep on making babies?  Maybe I should release them in the Fall.  Hmmm?
