Members of the Ampullariidae family are highly adaptable, making them one of the most successful species of freshwater snails. They have evolved the ability to live in a variety of environments and are renowned for their ability to reproduce rapidly. The female snails have especially evolved to be larger than the males, allowing them to lay their eggs more efficiently. The eggs can hatch in as little as two weeks, with the young snails able to eat the same foods as the adults. This combination of adaptability, rapid reproduction, and efficient egg-laying makes the Ampullariidae family an incredibly successful species of freshwater snails.

Pomacea sp. can consume a variety of food items, including algae, plants, vegetables, flake food, frozen foods, and live foods.
