Is My Snail Dead?

    I just purchased my first snail from PetSmart. It's a blue mystery snail but it looks green and very dirty. After bringing the snail home, I noticed that the bag of water they placed him in smells AWFUL and the water is cloudy. As soon as I opened the bag, the smell hit me. It literally smells like a dead animal would. Is my snail dead? Or is this normal?

    Sounds very dead. Take him back and get a replacement.

    I took him back to PetSmart and exchanged him for a black nerite who seems to be doing well. Thanks for the input!
