Yep he/shes a haustrum. At least thats what the guy at the lfs said and I trust this place. They actually know something about fish which is nice. They even have a sign posted on their goldie tanks that goldies should have at least ten gallons per fish! :D

Although he said the snail would probably leave my plants alone...yeh, right. I knew otherwise but I was willing to take the risk and I woke up this morning and found about 1/3 of a plant gone... :rolleyes: Oh well, the snail is awesome...my roommate is afraid of it. When she came in last night and saw it she said "WHAT THE "HECK" IS THAT" (she used a diff. choice word) and pointed at the fish tank. :lol:

Yeah :rofl When she came in it reminded me of when King Kong climbed the Empire State Building. I've got this big decoration (the one I shattered and fixed, yay!) that looks like a mountain and the snail was sitting at the top of it looking around with all his antenna things out. Oh I wish I could have gotten a picture of that, it looked so cool.

Heres the mountain...now imagine that huge snail sitting on top :lol:

WOW now that is big :thud

I wanted a snail but then I heard all this stuff about it laying eggs on its own (without a mate) and then the baby nails taking over the tank and that pretty much deterred me. How do you keep snails from breeding like that? Maybe if I knew more about them I'd be braver and more willing to get one. My LFS has a ton of golden apple snails.

Apple snails need a guy around to have babies :D The only trouble is they can store sperm for a long time. If you get one and go through a couple months with no babies then you should be safe. :D

Nicole that is one big snail. What is the name?

I do believe that one is close to Chewy's size, huh Devs?

I can imagine your roomie's face, I think they are great to look at but in all honesty they "freak" me out too.

Enjoy him/her it is a real find.
