    Magnificent ramshorn

    Taxon: Gastropod, freshwater snail Range: Lower Cape Fear River Basin, North Carolina Status: Candidate (2011) This snail is an integral part of a complex food web found in freshwater ponds exclusively along coastal North Carolina. This rare snail can no longer be found in the wild places it once inhabited, and is not to be confused with a common relative (the ramshorn snail) found abundantly in pet shops and aquariums.  Visit the species profile...
