Nerite flipped over

mteverett

This morning I found my nerite snail flipped over, it has not flipped over. I just now flipped him back over. This is what he looks like, I’m not very experienced as this is my first snail. Does he look okay?

That’s how nerites look when you they pull their foot back into their shell. It’s normal. :)
I used to get pretty worried about mine when they’d end up upside down somehow or other, but they generally manage to pull themselves back onto their foot again. You can still move them back upright if you want, but it’s not usually necessary.
They can be pretty clumsy. Sometimes mine just fall off of things.
