That is true of a lot of snails, but not mystery snails. They are not hermaphroditic.

I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!

I know there's only a few types of snails who are not hermaphrodites like the apple snail but I'm not really sure which freshwater snails are not but its definitely rare that they have seperate sexes.
