What Type Of Snail Is This?

Webber

Hello Everyone, Hope you all are well yesterday I bought 2 snails from my lfs even they don't know what type of these snails are. Usually many lfs in my area are not expert. I have read some articles to identify these species but its so confusing. I posted some pics of my snail, guys please help me to find out what type of snails I am having.

Thank you

I'm not a snail guy to be honest. I know they like blanched veggies, need a source of calcium for shell health, grow fairly large, and lay huge clutches of eggs above the water line.

They can grow to the size of a golf ball and are opportunist eaters that will readily accept sick/dying tank mates as well as blanched spinach and zucchini
They roam all around the tank and the males never pass the waterline, only females carrying eggs. If it is a female, she will lay eggs regardless if a male is present but they will be infertile.
They do excrete a fair bit of waste when they grow but they are nice and easy snails
Copper is deadly to them- if you ever use medication containing copper you will have to remove it first, food and fertilizer containing copper are fine
they don't really mind tank parameters as long as you supplement calcium in their diet
Your new pet will live for around 2-3 years
Great addition to your tank :]
