Leopard? I'll have to Google that. Lol. Smiley face means he's a good snail?

Leopard is the same as any other ramshorn, it just means it has a leopard pattern that may fade out over time. Great cleaners though so not a bad one to have.

Yes, not as pesty as pond snails or mini-ramshorns, at least in my book.

unknown to most, blue ramshorns tend to have a leopard and brownish coloring until maturity

My blues always had a clear shell with leopard pattern, until the shell became opaque.

Oh how exciting!

I have 3 leopards that hitchhiked in!

They are now brown footed.

If I have leopard with reds, what might their offspring be like?
