Any snail buffs out there?
I'm trying to ID this guy so I can keep him healthy and happy! He came from a small lake. Any info would be helpful and greatly appreciated! Thanks
I'd guess Chinese mystery snail. From what I could find through the wonders of google, sounds like they're an invasive species in the US and Canada from the fishing trade. Run a google search for lake snails and you'll get a ton of links and such that I think are the right snail, though they're much less covered is stuff than this little guy. I'd try taking care of it like a standard mystery snail and see how that goes, but from the sounds of it, he may get pretty big.
Also, we do actually have a snail section in the freshwater inverts, so if you end up with more questions about him, they'll probably be seen better there.
Thank you! I'll keep researching and also try there!
I love snails, too! Are you in it's native range?
If u ask me looks like a mud snail not 100% sure though.
