Snails are a lot easier than fish, Matt. =] They don't even need a lot of water in the bag. They just need to be kept in a very humid environment with a little water in there.
Put some tank water in a mylar bag, drop in a few snails, open the bag to let air in, then close it really tight and twist. Tie it in a knot, double bag and repeat. Wrap the package in newspaper, to prevent water from leaking out. Throw it in a box filled with some kind of insulation. This time of year, you could probably get away with just newspaper, but stryofoam or fiberglass is the way to go. Close the shipping box and mail it Priority mail 1-3 day. =] Bada-bing, bada-boom!

How do you print a shipping label?....does the PO do it or what? Where do I get the bags?

I would check on the temperature before you ship anything live. It might already be to hot here to ship. It was 92F here today.
When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

You use Paypal. You can use the Multi Order Shipping feature. The link for that is on the right-side of the Paypal site, after you've logged in. You can create/print shipping labels from that.

I'd be inclined to pick a couple up off you too, just to help out.

yeah, my back fence's thermometer says it is 90°. *in the shade*
It is alright, I'm a patient sort. We could wait until Sept. for the weather to cool down some.
