Is this a Rabbit Snail?

Valleriani

Is this a rabbit snail? I often have MTS and I toss them in the tank with some pea puffers for a meal. This one survived. It looks like a rabbit snail which is super odd. So story time!

I have had only one rabbit snail in my main tank. He/She was an adult when I got her and she lived about a year. There have been no other rabbit snails with this one.

This snail is now getting pretty big (about 3CM now?). I would say about 5 months is when I saw this new snail and tossed it in, it was really small. It was hiding in it's shell so I didn't have a clue and thought it was just another MTS as I used to get them once a month or so appearing.

The odd thing is I know they carry their young. Where did she get the sperm from? From what I know rabbit snails need both a male/female. Surely she wasn't carrying sperm for 4-6 months? Maybe so (Could they be like livebearers which hold sperm for a long time?)

I'm very clueless! Strange but awesome to have another.
