Ok, so dumb question I'm sure, but can MTS flip themselves over once they are upside down? I just got some and a few of them keep getting flipped over. I put them back and they crawl around, so they are not dead.

I've never had any of these issues with my mystery or nerite snails.

Yup, they can. I removed some rotala that has MTS on it from my tank and shook the MTS off. Some MTS landed on their backs. I check back 10 minutes later and the MTS are right side up and crawling away.

Yep they St reach their bodies all the way out latch on to something and flip over...

As for wild survival... I think its the same as in a tank... the burrow into the ground... though I have never seen a wild one... would be cool lol
