Turbo Snails

How do I pull turbo snails apart? There's about 5 of them stuck together and they won't let go. Is it harmful if you pull them apart? Or is there any easier way to get them to let go?

I noticed the guy at the fish store just picked them off the glass, and I was wondering if the turbo snails were injured. If they are, will they be okay?

just give them some time, they will seperate. Mine stayed that way for almost 6 hours before pulling away from each other.

To get mine to release, I just touch the foot of the snail with my finger and they release immediately. Dont know if your supposed to do that but it works
