hunter's use them during the winter hunting season. You just "break" them like a glow stick, and they stay warm for quite a while, depending on which ones you get.

Well, I am looking for a snail to put in with my female I am getting tomorrow and I have lots of spare room in my 10 gallon if more than one comes along for the ride. What would it cost me? I need to be careful with the cost of my new baby and hopefully some plants for her. Also, how big do they get?

shows you how on top of it I've been. Last I knew, they were using those! lol

They don't run as long as the shipping packs do.

I PMed you. They get an inch or so long but they can start small.

That DOES sound easy! What is the shipping cost? And how did the ones in the baggies not suffacate?
I did priority mail in a flat rate box with delivery confirmation and it came to about $11. They weren't in the bag for more then 3 or 4 days and they weren't fed for at least 24 hours before shipping. I'm thinking maybe they did fine because they were all pretty small still - about pea sized. Nowhere near the monsterous 3 inches they will become as adults. I sold japanese trapdoor snails and they like colder water, I left them in a cup in room temp overnight, the bagged them up right before shipping.
