  • Snails In The Mail take pride in our ability to get your snails safely to their destination.  Due to the fact that our shippers do not provide insurance for "perishable" items, we are unable to insure your snails through USPS.  However, our company has been known to reimburse people who let us know of a problem or reship snails.  
  • We follow strict shipping guidelines set forth by UPS/USPS.
  • Snails often go into a hibernation state during shipping and can appear as if they are dead.  When you receive your snails... simply mist them in water or dunk them in a bowl of water.
  • Please watch for updates to this section as these are only the basic guidelines in regards to shipping. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns,  please feel free to use the CONTACT tab. We would love to hear from you!

Californians do not need any permits.

Please read our FAQ in regards to shipping permits if you are outside California.
