I am assuming that these two snails are the same species. Both were found in my small garden pond when it was being cleaned this morning.

Great Ramshorn

You are correct in assuming that these are the same species. Tiggrx is quite right - they are Great Ramshorn snails. The red one is more unusual due to the fact that these particular snails lack the dark skin pigment melanin. I've been breeding these creatures and they particularly love eating watercress!
