Hi, I had snails years ago, and recently saw them in the pet store. I went back yesterday and bought a tiny "critter carrier" and asked about the snails. the guy gave me 9. 4 are Malaysian Trumpet Snails and the other 5 are what he called generic pond snails, although they look like the apple snails and mystery snails. I have no idea how to identify them. I have two questions on the mystery snails. 1 - will they get bigger than about a 1/2 inch. 2 -- I read that they carry a parasite which is dangerous to humans. i have young children and if they are dangerous, i need to get rid of them now. Does anyone have any ideas about this?
