The pre-school children had a surprise one morning when they discovered our giant African land snail Bolt has had babies.

This was a great learning opportunity for the children as we talked about the life cycle of a snail, we discovered after some research that the small white balls we found in the tank were actually snail eggs. Each day we checked the tank to see if there had been any changes to the eggs and after two weeks we saw some very tiny snails hatching out and beginning to move around. We will now watch them grow.
