Anyone collect their own Olive Nerite snails
Anyone collect their own Olive Nerite snails here in Florida? Especially on the space coast.

No one?

Are they found in this area?

rodcuda 01-16-2013 02:13 AM

It is my understanding that they are. Maybe more here on the east coast.

I have only seen Japanese Trap Door snails to be honest.

Where did you see those?

Unikorn 01-21-2013 01:42 AM

where would I look for them?

rodcuda 01-21-2013 01:49 AM

Apparently where fresh water runs into saltwater and in brackish water.

check mangroves. I've seen snails all over them that are out of the water. they look like nerites but it doesn't make sense for them to be out of the water.

Maybe laying eggs. The mystery snails lay eggs out of the water

Olives lay their eggs underwater, those may be apple snails.

Santa Fe River near White springs, millions of them.
About 1 hour away from any saltwater.
They also live near saltwater also, I found them all over near Cedar Key.

From the Santa Fe:

Where we found them in Cedar Key

Sorry, this is a bit Westcoast FL.

That is good to know, I will have to look some more here on the east coast!!
