how can you tell if a snail is male or female?

Snails have both reproductive organs at birth, so it really doesn't matter what sex they are.

Snails are hermaphrodites.

Most species of snails are hermaphrodites, although there are a few species that have different sexes. Some of the differences are not visible to the naked eye, while others are. The apple snail male has a larger arpeture or opening than the famale due to the large penial complex. Other species have a difference in colour and shell size.
