  The interesting thing about them is that they are viviparous. These snails dont lay eggs. Young snails draw the first breath as entirely formed snails.
  There are just borned Achatina iredalei snails in the photo. An adult snail has come to the surface throug the dark hole on the right. This photo was made through the transparent aquarium bottom.
