Is my nerite snail dead?

I’ve noticed it hasn’t moved in a very long time. I was cleaning the tank today & picked it up & it’s tucked away in its shell. Hasn’t moved in probably 2 weeks. Doesn’t smell bad, so I’m not positive its dead & I don’t want to dispose of a live snail.

If it doesn't smell and tucks in it isn't dead.

Ok thanks. Do you know why it hasn’t moved in a long time?

No not really but it hasn't moved at all? They can sit still for a day or 2 but usually not weeks. Maybe it was really old when you purchased it? Mine I can move from tank to tank and they start moving almost instantly. What are your parameters?
