Is this little fellow mutant enough?
I thought he would just end up blue, but his blue triangle in the front still havent spread to the rest of his body

Any ideas of what color he/she might be?
He/she is from my second clutch, so im not so familiar with mutants yet

That's the flesh color of the snail showing through the transparent shell. Perfectly normal for now and should be less noticeable as the shell thickens. If the body darkens, then with the yellow shell it would be considered a jade.

Okay thanks :)
The father of the baby is a jade, but his shell looked blue untill he was mature.
Here is 2 pictures of the jade father

Beautiful snails! Like I said, we'll just have to see if the flesh darkens, as I think it will with all the spots. But you never know, they like to fool you!
