RIP Ziggy Stardust

Postby Amysnail on Mon Jun 25, 2012 3:50 pm

Ziggy Stardust, my biggest female flapple passed away last night. She was a sweet girl, always loved her algae wafers, and loved to parasnail. I've got a couple of clutches of hers waiting to hatch, but I know the mortality rate for captive born flapples. I know I have lots of snails, but they are all special to me as individuals. I love her and will miss her and her antics. I just wanted to recognize her on here, amongst people who share in my love for snails. Thanks for giving me a place to do that. :cry:

Thanks, its amazing how these little guys work their way into our hearts. I love to sit and watch them play, it better than any TV show I've ever seen.

I wish Ziggy had been here today, her first clutch has started to hatch. So far I have three healthy baby flapples. They are soooo cute. Kinda makes me sad that she didn't live long enough to see her adorable little ones, and they will never meet their mom. But at least they are hatching and they're healthy. So Ziggy will live on through her babies.

I'm sorry for the loss of your Ziggy girl! I bet she has beautiful babies. And sorry I didn't see this thread earlier.

Thank you so much, Ziggy has three surviving baby flapples. They hatched a few days after she died. I still have two of her clutches waiting to hatch. Both clutches have about twenty to thirty eggs in them. Its nice to know that I can come here and be understood when something bad happens to one of my little guys. No one that is part of my everyday life understands why I love my snailies so much. So on here, I feel like part of a family, and am accepted, and understood. I want to give everyone on here a big hug and tell everyone thank you for making me feel like I'm not alone in my love for snails. So many people in my daily life really think its weird, and don't even try to understand. So you guys don't know how much it means to me to have you guys as my forum family.
