When I first purchased these 2 Apple Snails they were about the size of a regular marble. Now, about 3 months later they are bigger then golf balls. I feed them very calcium rich foods and DO NOT overfeed them. I take care of there water because these 2 can do some "damage" to a tank with the amount of waste they can put out. Sometimes I think I am taking care of 2 elephants! There is one problem though. I do not know how to put the pictures in with post!

You may have Cana's. People misidentify the different apple snails all the time. Try www.applesnail.net

We raise pomacea bridgesii snails and they are the ones you want if you have plants at all. They won't eat any plants except parts that are dead or decaying. Cana's will get up to baseball size where the brig's are roughly golf ball size. That site will tell you everything and more about them.

I have Cana's. The size of them will be enormous min a coupleof months. I am going to move them to a larger tank pretty soon. I have been to that website before, who am I kidding, many times...lol. I have it saved. I am going to have a large tank just for snails....At the rate that they are going/growing, they will be about the size of a "softball" like my neighbors snail.
