I took these photos a couple of years ago, but fortunately I put them on photobucket because I accadentaally deleated all my snail photos from the hard drive! Sad Bit stupid of me.

Anyway, some wild caught P. canaliculata:









This is the male:



And as a comparison, this is the "normal" strain kept in the hobby:

Hey there!
I have what i think are wild Canas too. I got them from Thailand - collected them myself Laughing They are much more stripy than my regular Canas - very attractive i think! flower Research also tells me that they might be insularum's? But i think they are probably Canas..

These two were getting a little 'happy' earlier today!

They look to me to be Canas, but they could be Insularum's. I thought mine were Insularum's, but when they never got bigger than 6cm I decided they were Canas.

I would love some Insularum's though, stunning species!

Thought you might like to see some pics of where i collected the Canas in Thailand:

Here are some of the eggs:



Here is the pond they were living in:



And more eggs (you can also see the snails lingering below the leaves in the pond!)



It was crazy, the highest eggs I found were laid about 5 feet above the water! So, the 3 inches we provide in the aquarium hood may seem a little inadequate for them!

Thats a lot of snails beneath the water!

I was reading that one species of snail rare;ly kept in the hobby will only lay its eggs 3ft at least out of the water. Needless to say, it means you have to do a fair bit of planning!

lol. They are mostly seed pods in the water...i think i can only see 3 snails max in the water below. Which species is it that lays 3 feet minimum above the waterline?
