Pink ramhorns turn into blue leopards?

I didnít know this was possible...only thing I can think of is original stock was housed with blue leopards and carried the gene. These literally popped up out of nowhere....has anyone else experienced this?

Spotted or "leopard" Ramshorn Snails are generally just juveniles. They'll develop solid coloration when older.

Many Ramshorns will also appear to be pink/orange/red/blue when young only to turn brown as they age. That's not to say all of them turn brown. But most (many? I'm leaning toward most.) do.

My bigguns are all pink with white/pink shells. None of their offspring have exhibited this coloration until now.

If they're pink/blue/red/orange at adulthood, they'll produce more colorful offspring in my experience. But they can still throw browns.

For a snail, these are pretty.
I haven't seen Ramshorn snails locally, I suppose will need to find an online vendor to get some.

Interesting. Thanks for the info! All there is to do now is see how these turn out. Either way, theyíre awesome.

They really are beautiful imo. The adults are the best, when their shells are fully formed.

Bump:
Hereís one of the bigguns.
