Lunged Aquatic Snail (Pulmonate Pond Snail)

Photo of pulmonate snail crawling on rock out of water

Many pulmonate snails crawl to the water surface to take in air, but others can stay underwater all the time. This snail was crawling on a dry rock on the edge of a creek. Except for in the Ozarks, pulmonate snails predominate in most of the aquatic regions in our state.
