How the heck did the snail survive THAT?!?!

He crawled out of my tank awhile ago, and I found him DAYS later, wrapped up in a towel, on the floor, still alive! The humidity was %60 and the emp was 70

Is that even possible? Does he have brain damage? Should I still sell his babies?

if he's still alive and able to breed his babies will probably be okay.

The slightest amount of moisture is enough to keep them alive, they will close up and basically cocoon themselves in. As long as they have a small amount of water and dont dry out they will survive.

usually if they're trying to escape, there is something wrong with your water.

We had a few apple snails scuttle off. We found them behind the tank... 1/5 died, the others were chilling out. We put them back and they were fine. Usually the water iteself is to blame.
