    Question ?on a snail

    Hi! Very nice forum!
    i got a snail on a new rock
    1.25 cm long ,black with a little brown on the back
    no shell ,move fast.
    Today i saw puff of white stuff like milk every 3 sec comming behind a rock ? It was that little thing !
    i didnt want to take a chance, i took it out.
    What was that?dangerous or just a sexual thing???!!!

    First of all, WELCOME! You will enjoy it here! great advice and lots of experience!

    Now, I had the same thing happen to me just last week! Turns out the little guys are stomatella snails, and this is a breeding ritual! Here's the link:

    do a search for them and you will find some pics to compare to.

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?
