What Do Pond Snails Eat?


Pond snails are sometimes referred to as the scavengers of the pond. This is because they eat anything they can find at the bottom of the pond, including dead and decaying vegetation. Pond snails are also known to eat algae, and if they are pets you can feed them small pieces of lettuce, fish flakes or even shrimp pellets.
