Giant Trapdoor Snails

Each pond snail is approximately 1.5- 2" in diameter. The outer shell is brown/black in color. Each trapdoor snail is equipped with an operculum, or "trap door" that they use to cover the shell opening to protect themselves against predators. It is common for the snails to "close the door" when you open the package.

Pond snails are nature's perfect bottom cleaner. They work their way across the bottom of the pond eating algae, dead vegetation, and uneaten fish food. 

These are reproducing snails. Our giant snails are mature and ready to populate your pond! 

Besides fish and plants, snails are also essential component to a pond's ecosystem.
