What is coming out of my snail.

I'm kind of worried. I just picked up two new snails earlier today and I noticed this coming out of one of them. Is it poop? Eggs? Or some sort of disease?

Oh yes, they'll live... and take over your tank. Keep an eye on the population.

Well doesn't matter now I accidently knocked it off the glass so it will probablly either get eaten or sucked up in the filter.
