10 Pack of Japanese Trapdoor Snails


Japanese Trapdoor Snails are named for their operculum, which is a tough plate that protects the snail by forming a seal at the edge of the snail’s shell when its soft body is retracted inside. They are also known by the name Chinese Mystery Snails. These snails’ shells are spiral-shaped, but otherwise they vary significantly in appearance – no two snails look exactly alike!  Each snail has slightly different coloration and patterns, but they usually feature more natural-looking colors such as brown and green. Trapdoor Snails are quite large as adults and can grow up to 2 inches in length, making them one of the largest freshwater snails in the aquarium hobby.
