Invasive Species - Mystery Snails

Chinese and Japanese Mystery Snails

Chinese and Japanese mystery snails compete with native snails for food and habitat. They can host parasites and diseases that are known to infect humans. Their shells can obstruct intake pipe screens and restrict water flow. These species are native to Southeast Asia, Japan and Eastern Russia.
