How Can I Tell If My Mystery Snail Is Dead?

    My snail hasn't moved in two days. I took it out and smelled it but it didn't stink. Do you think it's still alive?

    Does it stink? If yes, then it's dead.
    If no, is it hanging out of it's shell all floppy and dead? If yes, then it's dead.
    If no, it's probably not dead.

    It's not unusual for them to go into kind of a week long hibernation.

    If it is dead, give it a few more days, then you'll know how bad it should smell.
