Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We did not find the pouch snail but we think we found the orb snail. we think this because it has a circular spiral shell when the pouch snail has a cone shaped shell that is spiraled at the end.

Despite both snails belonging to the plenorbidae family we can clearly identify the orb snail as it does not have lungs like the pouch snail
Photo of my evidence.
We know we found an orb snail because it has neither a right handed nor left handed snail. but the pouch snail is a left handed snail.
