How can i tell if my snail is dead?

Answer

From what I know, there are a few ways to tell if your snail is dead. If it is a water snail, it will float to the top of the tank. For a land snail, you should try to feed it and then poke it.

The best way to tell if your snail is dead, is to watch it for a couple days. If it's not coming out and eating/drinking then it could probably be dead. Pick it up and see if the inside of it is dry. If it is, it might be dead.
