Percy is a Parent

We have had great fun observing and learning about Percy and the babies today.
 
Percy is our giant African land snail, Percy is a hermaphrodite, meaning the snail is both male and female.
 
 They don't often self-fertilise but Percy has! They produce eggs in batches of anywhere between 30 and 1,000. 
 
Percy buried to the bottom of the tank to lay the eggs, once the small white eggs hatched the tiny clear babies appeared on the surface of the soil.
