Yoadie yo ho !!!

Based on a message from Olga Betts to All,

These snails are livebearers, and they are hermaphroditic,
meaning they don't need a male and a female, at least that's
what I've read about them. This means that you should soon
see very very small M.tuberculata moving around, and there
will be no eggs or anything. That's why getting rid of those
snails is nevt to impossible, if anyone wants to get rid of
them, of course (I couldn't imagine why one would...).
