Freshwater baby snails look like tiny minature versions of the adult. Marine snails (from the ocean) have several stages, but they're called trochophore and veliger larvae. Trochophores are microscopic, and look a bit like a little bee hive with little hairs at the top. Veliger larvae looks like a snail shell with two parachutes on the bottom.
