    It has a wing deformity, it never had wings as far as I know.

    I found this little guy on the floor a few days ago, looking a bit dehydrated, and decided to give it a temporary home. It's been eating and pooping a lot and seems to be doing well. I'm going to release it though.

    @Marika, I can't see any of the photos you have posted (besides the one from today.) :(

    Yep, that's because Photobucket sucks. The account used to be free, now they want me to pay $400 a year to enable third party hosting, and without any prior warning. Yeah, I'm not going to do that...

    Nice caterpillar, do you know what butterfly it will be?
    Your problem with Photobucket really sucks. This is not the fine behavior.

    Cool! We had snails too, when my children were young. We had some species of Achatina ^^.

    Those C. aspersum were sold as feeders, so they should be happy that they're not going to get eaten :p

    I love their coloring! I was looking for a new species for a long time, but couldn't decide what I wanted. When I saw them I knew I had to have them :happy:

    I do not think these are allowed in the States

    Nope, they aren't, such a shame. :( I can understand why they are banned, many snails have proven to be significant pests of crops and often displace native species, but man I would love to keep an African land snail one day...

    I thought I'd re-post some of the older pics that Photobucket is holding hostage.
