ooh Haustrum eggs! How exciting! My first pair of haustrums gave me a couple clutches but the first was infertile because it was her first and the second...well, I let it get too dry and it died :( If you want really good advice on hatching I would suggest popping in to applesnail.net ....those people are as nuts about snail as we are about goldies :D Good luck!

Yep, they're a breed of apple. Haustrums are plant eaters like canas...but their spire is more brig like than a cana. They're in the same complex as cana because of their indented sutures on the spire. They get a little bigger than brigs but not nearly as big as canas. I think they only come in one color as well...unlike both canas and brigs. They're in the same complex as cana because of their indented sutures on the spire. They also have a fairly distinctive foot, its very wide and has a blue tint...I can always tell my haustrum from my canas just by size of the foot when they're climbing on the glass.
