Banded mystery snails

The banded mystery snail grazes and filter-feeds on dead organic matter, typically on silt and mud substrates. They are called “mystery” snails because females give birth to young, fully developed snails that suddenly and “mysteriously” appear. Their lifespan is about four years. These snails can die off in large numbers and wash up on shore.
