Anyone ever order snails before?


Recommended Posts

Well I bought 25 nassarius snails on ebay the other day. I got the shipment today. They where shipped with no water just wrapped up in a wet cloth. This seems like the dumbest thing ever. Since all but 1 seem to be alive and I have had them in the water for a few hours now.

you can try putting them in another bowl see if it helps. If not contact the seller...see what they can do for you

most snails and crabs are intertidal, so they can come out of the water. it's not abnormal to get them shipped to you "dry" (meaning damp). I wouldnt use a paper towlel and wrap them, but having a wet paper towel in the bag for them to hold onto wouldnt be a bad idea.

yea they they stunk and where dead.

I am waiting on the seller to contact me about replacement.


When snails are shipped to us at the store thats how they come, wrapped in newsprint.
