If you see a black bulge on the snail, it is a male. Females don’t have this. Male and female snails both lay eggs, so it doesn’t matter what gender it is.

Snails are hermaphrodite: Don't waste your time trying to tell the males and females apart. This is because snails are hermaphrodites, meaning that they have the reproductive organs of both genders on them.
