Unhappy My snail might be dead :|

Well, for those of you who keep mystery snails, how do you know when they die? Mango hasn't come out in two days, maybe longer, and I think he's dead. I just don't want to take him out if he's live.

If you pull him out for a sec, it won't hurt him. Tip him down and if he doesn't move and just kinda slides out of his shell a bit, he's dead.

Snails have been known to be dormant for sometime.

But yes, pull him out, and if he slides out, he's a goner. He may also smell quite bad.

Yeah it is. I've had him for about a month and a half, but he wasn't looking too good when I got him either. AND Jazz scared him, so he stopped eating for a day or two about 2 weeks ago.
