Land  Snails Legal in Colorado?

Hi there! I'm currently looking for some land snails to own as pets in Colorado, however I don't know what snails are legal and illegal. I know the Giant African Land Snail is illegal in the United States, but are there any other snails I should know are illegal?  I was looking at helix aspersa aspersa snails, but am unsure if they're legal to own in Colorado.  Are there any other requirements I need such as licenses? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    To my know, the African giant is illegal, I doubt others are unless invasive species.

    Certainly your native garden snails are legal, kept those myself years back.

    Here is the law, such as it is:

    I suggest you check with your local Pet Stores for a more precise opinion.
