Liguus fasciatus mating in their natural habitat.

DO NOT MANIPULATE,DOWNLOAD reproduce without written permission from Juan C Aguero. All rights reserved.
Courtship and mating occur in the late summer or early fall. Three to four weeks later, the female burrows up to the length of her shell into the leaf litter of the hammock floor and lays up to 50 elliptical, pea-sized eggs. The young snails, called buttons, hatch at the beginning of the rainy season. Adults also emerge from aestivation at this time and the cycle begins anew.
