My daughter was hanging out at our little pond the other day and found the egg mass of some aquatic creature. At first I assumed it was a mass of snail eggs, because it had that look. But when we put it under the microscope, the eggs were arranged in perfect rings around the mass. I spent most of my childhood raising aquatic snails in little fishbowls on my windowsill (sorry, Mom!) and never saw an egg mass so orderly.
What could it be?
Neither of us had any idea.
But we have fish tanks…
The egg mass is currently in a small tank, and we’re checking daily. One of these days our mystery will be solved.
