Will the snail get out?

Do snails have an escape mindset? I just got a 5gal kit, and at the same stop picked up a black mystery snail...While setting up the 5gal, I find there's a hole for the filter, which actually much larger than the filter. So my question...will the snail try and get out?

I haven't heard any stories on here about them getting out. If you're worried, I'd go to a craft store and buy divider material (where there are holes in it or slots) and cut it so it can't escape.

I guess I'll put him in and if he's out later I'll go buy something to seal it. And I can not find that material...I've looked everywhere, I even asked at Michaels, they don't carry anything like it! lol

The snails in my tank only go as high as the water. They really don't seem to like to climb out of it.

I asked at the craft store, and I looked in that section, figuring it'd be there...they don't seem to know what it is in Nebraska! I'm going to explore Omaha in a bit, maybe I will find a craft store that has it!
