I don't know how to ship them, I don't think it would be as hard as shipping fish though... I believe whiteangel was looking for snails... I want to say there was someone else but that's all I could think of off hand...

Unless they are in snail mail you can ship them like fish...better yet if it is overnight or priority you can stick a dozen or so in a baggie. Just put a detox product t imes double, pack em in popcorn (don't wanna use styro or buy it? Pop some...birds will love it!) and newsprint. Send em away. They don't die in temp drops as long as it isn't extreme. Summer might pose a prob.
Prioity mail and paypal and you are less some snails.
Even I was looking for snails..I can't keep enough. My daughter has very bare tanks for her bettas (as far as live plants go) only breeeding tanks have real plants but half the buggers eat snails. And many of the tanks have botia loaches. And I am not givin up my high price apples for snacks! As it is I ended up having to but expensive ones as big as a fist to keep em safe!

I am surprised no one loves their loachies enough to snag some yet..heh!

2 day priority mail (usps) for up to 2 pounds is $4.90

That would be 1.5 cups of water + snails in a bag with some air that would fit in a small square box.

Maybe use a water conditioner which has "ammo lock" in it.

I will take as many as will fit without exceeding 2 pounds total weight (box, packing materials, water, and snails).

I'll paypal you $5.75 [shipping and packing materials] at the end of the week (ship snails on monday) if this seems satisfactory to you. Just PM or email me with your paypal information.

Under 1 pound is $3.85 with priority.

This was using a generic LA zipcode and my zipcode. UPS was outrageous in comparison for a 2day shipment.

If snails are that tough and you can manage to keep the weight under 1pound with snails and water I can do that for the same $5.75 as listed above. 1 cup of water weighs about 0.52 pounds (roughly 8oz) so that would give 0.48 pounds to work with as far as packing materials and snails go...I would also double bag it just incase. Remember that as soon as you go over 1lb the shipping cost jumps up to $4.90 for priority.

4lbs would be $8.05...you could send one package to Christmasfish and I could take half the snails. You live near Olympia correct Christmasfish? I could simply plan my next trip for shopping at Ft. Lewis to coincide with the day the snails arrive if that would be easiest (it would save $1.75 on shipping) and Christmasfish does not mind. Thus, two payments of $5 would still offer $1.95 for packaging and your efforts.
