It's sad but true: Baboons kill snails.
I recently moved my happy family of snails from their swampy little jar to a nice new exciting jungle tank. Only to have them spasm around for a while and then die. At first I thought I had shocked them because the water was a tad on the warm side. Yeah, being picked up with chopsticks from your swamp and dropped into a tepid jungle tank can be traumatic, I know. But I added some cold water and figured they'd recover. Then I dropped in some new teenager snails just to prove it. Well, they all died.
Fast forward by about a week. I finally got around to cleaning out the dirty tank. I washed the tank, rinsed off the rocks for like 5 minutes, filled it with fresh water and put the plants back in there, SANS BABOON. And what happened? I killed 5 more snails within an hour. Shit!
It looks like I'll be waiting for some eggs to hatch in my swamp jar. Baboons suck.
