what kind of snail?

I had a thread about hitch hikers from Petsmart and knew I may get a few on the plants i bought. So far I have about 7 in my tank and kind of like them. I have identified pond and ramshorn snails. But one snail is growing much faster than the rest. I tried a few pics with my phone and they get the idea across. what is he/she/it?!?

if someone needs or wants a better pic or angle just let me/us know

Looks like a baby ramshorn to me.'
Might just be finding more food to munch on than the others.

in the last picture his shell has a flat spot and that was throwing me off. So that is good to hear he is a ramshorn

Some of mine have flat spots or weird bumps on them. I have assumed its been from times of less calcium in their water. When I first got mine in they had thin cracked shells and now they have thick shells everywhere there is new growth

Wow what a pretty baby.

With my 40+ pond snails 2 of them have grown faster than the others and 1 is already larger than a pea xD Snails grow faster than the others depending on how much food they get. Just means that baby is your little pigglet.
