"I'm a real animal lover. I adore animals of all shapes and sizes."
First we have Isabelle. I named this one when I took the photos. I don't know why that particular name came to me. I think it just fit them for some reason. Isabelle is a Jade coloured snail like Agron, meaning dark shelled and white bodied. I had thought all but one would yellow shelled with white bodies but apparently not.
There's a couple with shells like this and I'm a little confused as to how they're going to turn out but right now I think they're really interesting.
On this one you can see some very light stripes. I'm not sure if these will fade away to a yellow shell as they grow or not. Duro and Violet have had some slightly darker patches on their shells not I don't recall obvious stripes like this.
For a long time this one was the only one I could tell apart because they're the only one with a dark body like Duro and they also had this speckled shell as you can see. I've decided to call this one Spartacus to go along with Agron and Duro. I'm not convinced these little speckles are going to stay but I wish hey would. They remind me of freckles. Spartacus is also one of the biggest out of the babies.
I'm really happy with the condition of their shells so far. It's inevitable that they'll get scars and cracks here and there but so far they're all looking really good, apart from one that has a slight dent. When I got Violet they were just a bit smaller than these guys and their shell was so crusty and dull. Both Agron and Duro had a lot of shell damage too. Duro looks a lot better because he was smaller and had a lot of new shell growth to make up for it but Agron was bigger so he still has a lot of scarring.
The photo just below is one of my favourites out of all the ones I took. Which isn't an easy thing to choose. Do you have a favourite?
This little cutie is one of the smallest out of all my babies.
See what I mean about how photogenic they are? Thankfully their white bodies weren't too lost on my white desk.
Finally we have the smallest out of all of my cuties, little Nasir. Nasir is also named after a character out of the series, Spartacus. Agron constantly referred to Nasir's side, calling him 'little man' and such so I figured the name fit this one. As you can see Nasir has a little dent in their shell but it's already healing well so I'm not worried. I'm not sure how it happened but I'm keeping an eye on it. And as you can see it ain't holding them back.
That's all my babies. It feels weird referring to them as babies now that they'll be 5 months in a couple of weeks. The months have just flown in since I happened upon them, it feels like just yesterday. The other little baby my sister found in her tank is also doing well. I'll take some comparison photos soon if them, these kids and my adults.
