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.

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
