Have you seen any of these large snails in Collins Pond? They have been identified as Chinese Mystery Snails, an invasive aquatic species. They are larger than a walnut shell.
If you find any live snails, please mark where you find them and let us know. Two empty shells were discovered while gathering milfoil and have been identified by Lake Stewards of Maine, and reported as a suspected invasive species.
Lake Stewards of Maine would like to know whether we have a live infestation or whether the shells have floated down river from Little Sebago or Millpond. Thank you for keeping an eye out for these unwanted Chinese Mystery Snails. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
