Hi, it seems there is no section for mollusks (despite being very popular pets), and no one posts about them. I currently have 12 helix aspersa snails (all sleeping the winter out right now), 4 mystery snails (one is a baby), a couple ramshorn snails, 2 nerite snails and 1 Sulawesi rabbit snail. I hope to eventually get a pair of pacific sideband snails and a leopard or banana slug, but I don’t have the room right now. If anyone else here keeps mollusks then I would love to hear about them.

I had no idea mollusks were pets. By sleeping out the winter, do you mean they hibernate?
Yes, I don’t think it’s called hibernating with mollusks, but that’s basically what they are doing.

The Sulawesi rabbit, the ramshorns, nerites and mystery snails are all aquatic and in an indoor, heated tank so they are out and about this time of year.
