How does a snail reproduce?
You have had one mystery snail for a few months and you just found an egg sack how did one snail reproduce?
The male trapdoor snail buys the female snail flowers and then takes her to a dinner in a movie. If he is charming and funny and not too slimey, he will then proceed to mate with the female snail. These snails give birth to live young. They are not as prolific at breeding as egg laying aquatic snails.
Most snails lay eggs, but some are live-bearing snails, such as the Malaysian Trumpet Snail. Most snail species are hermaphroditic, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs. However, apple snails are one of the few exceptions to this rule. Snails typically reproduce sexually, although some species have been known to reproduce asexually.
The liver fluke's reproduction is part of a cycle: 1. Pasasite in an ant's cranium 2. Ant hangs from tip of leaf 3. Rabbit eats ant 4. Liver fluke leaves ant and produces eggs 5. Eggs are excreted over time 6. Snail eats excreted eggs 7. Eggs hatch inside of snail 8. Are released from snail in slime balls 9. Ant eats snail slime 10. Cycle restarts
I assume you mean fresh water snails. These types of snails (fresh water) are usually hermaphrodites, which means they can reproduce with any snail of the same species. The snails exchange sperm with each other. Or, occasionally your snail will be self-fertile, and get itself pregnant. If your snail is pregnant, it will lay it's eggs above the water, or in gel-like clumps on the surfaces under water. It needs two to three inches to…
The two tentacles that stick out are the eyes of the snail. The two lower and smaller tentacles on the sides of a snail are their feelers. Don't touch their tentacles and make the snail feel safe and secure in their habitat. Don't handle your snail/snails roughly and be sure that the things you do to the snail or to the habitat will be safe to the snail.
