    Very tiny snails spotted in my garden

    Hi nature enthusiasts. I have spotted some very tiny and very different snails in my garden over the weekend. They are very very tiny indeed. I would like to try and find out more about them.Click image for larger version.

    Has anyone else seen these snails around Gauteng? Any idea what species they might be. Where would they come from?

    They look a bit like those Stikeez things they were dishing out at Pick and Pay not so long ago

    The 2nd one looks like a pond snail. Do you have one, or a water feature?

    The 1st seems to be a close match for one of these http://www.ispotnature.org/node/566173

    Thank you so much Andromeda. And yes, we have a fish pond.

    The article on the Gulella was very insightful and completely over my head (giggle)

    Thanks again@
