Apple Snail Eggs

Ampullariidae

Description:

Ampullariidae, common name the apple snails, is a family of large freshwater snails, aquatic gastropod mollusks with a gill and an operculum. This family is in the superfamily Ampullarioidea and is the type family of that superfamily. The Ampullariidae are unusual because they have both a gill and a lung, with the mantle cavity being divided in order to separate the two types of respiratory structures. This adaptation allows these snails to be amphibious.

Habitat:

Found on the Hillsborough River, FL

Notes:

I found the two Apple Snail shells on the bank of the river.
