A friend of mine today gave me a large cowrie snail, asking me to clean it out for her to use as a shell. I told her I would, but I’m not gonna go and hurt a creature like that so instead I put it in my tank at home. Once I got home, I put it in and I did see it move a bit, but I’m afraid it was out of water too long. I’m not sure if it’s dead or not, but lots of slime coming from the snail-clear web like stringy stuff almost like when an anemone dies- started coming from it. I don’t really know a whole lot on cowries, so is it dead? Is it dying? Please let me know.
