How does breeding mystery snail colors work?


Recommended Posts

I assume two like snails will produce all the same offspring, but what if a jade and a blue mate? Or a black and a gold. Etc. Are some colors dominant, is it an even split, will new colors/patterns happen, or will they revert to "wild type". Or a little of everything?

Apple snail.net used to have a page where you could select color and pattern combinations and see the percentages of offspring mixes. If a mystery  snail mated prior to you buying they carry the milt for 10+ months and can utilize from several different matings for each clutch. There are charts available on google to show the myriad of combos and possible outcomes.
