Just when you thought I couldn’t be any nerdier or weirder… I’m totally overjoyed to be creating life. No family, I haven’t gotten anyone up the duff (well, not that I know of), let me explain. I’ve had pet fish on and off for many years (Siamese Fighters, Gouramis, I even have a pet prawn) and have induced the odd offspring… however, lately I’ve started breeding SNAILS! Scourge of the aquarium connoisseur, fine food for the French, and inspiration for the Nissan S‑Cargo. These aren’t your ordinary garden variety of snail, these are ‘Mystery Snails’ or ‘Apple Snails’ as they’re known in the US. These little suckers sell for up to $5 each in Canberra aquariums and I’ve got at least a freakin hundred of them! Feed them a piece of old carrot every now and then and watch their little turbos kick in as they race each other to the spoils.
I’m still waiting for the downside to my latest hobby!
