Hi,
Today someone gave me a giant snail of some sort but I don't know what. He's in a big jar right now becuase he came from a really gross tank and who knows what he could be carrying.
By the way, I named him Goliath :)





Does anyone know what he is? Will post more pics upon request.
Thanks.

Brie

There are many different kinds of snails.I have five types.The cana snail which is in the apple snail family is large and not as colorful as the brigs type apple.Check out applesnail.net they give a good example.
