Nice pics
I have a baby albino BN. LOVE him. But - he doesn't have any bristles yet. Does anyone know how old they are when they start sprouting their bristles?
Or is there something wrong with my little guy because he doesn't have any.
BTW - he LOVES his zucchini when I feed it to him. Unfortunately, so do the 2 mystery snails. The 3 of them are seriously comical when they all converge and bump and shoulder each other out for the best spot.

I dont know when they get the bristles. I bought the albino with them but it has grown some more since. The baby did not have any when I got it, but it is starting to show some very tiny stubs. Its been alittle over 2 month since i got the baby and of course i have no idea what is it's actual age is.

thanks. I've had my little guy about 2 months. He's grown quite a bit - relatively speaking LOL. I'll start watching for little stubs.
BTW - he also loves watermelon :hmm3grin2orange:
