I have a short and probably stupid question:

Do snails fight?

I'm trying to figure out what my snails are doing.

I don't think that they do....what kind of snails do you have?

It's possible that they're feeling each other out (pardon the graphic language) to see if they are of the opposite sex...

Or they have already determined that and are WAY beyond that stage already...

Well, that's what I was thinking, but it almost looked like the snail on the bottom was frantically trying to get the snail on the top off of it, and when it suceeded, the agresser persued the other till they repeated this performance.

"Not now honey, I have a headache"

My spixis do that sometimes. The female just is NOT in the mood, so she'll even clamp her operculum closed if he comes close.
