After it's opened, can I transfer the snails to a different container and freeze them? My skink wouldn't eat more than 4 or 5 a week so I don't want to waste an almost full can
Answer by ChewyNov 14, 2018
The snails can be frozen if they are not going to feed be fed right away.

Is this stored on-shelf or in a refrigerator?

I bought these for my cuban false chameleon. He had 0 interest in them. He wouldn’t even lick it. I may purchase again for my box turtle as i am exploring different foods to feed him but this was a no go for my cuban false chameleon unfortunately.

Not for birds

I was hoping the injured blue jay I am caring for would eat these to save me from searching outside for live ones. I tried giving them to him several times but he was not interested. Two weeks after openning the can, I threw them away assuming they were no longer good. The can needs to have an experation date and/or information regarding how long they are good for once the can is openned.

Consistent quality

I have fed Can O' Snails to my turtle regularly for 17 years, as a backup/treat behind ReptoMin Floating sticks.

Garter snakes love them

So, I saw in the Q&A there was the question multiple times as to whether garters could eat these or not and all the responses are the same very vague response. Since the description is "cooked in can" and generally no reptiles should be fed anything "cooked" it is kind of hard to figure out what that's about... but this is the 2nd time (in 3 years, so, not often) that I have fed my garters these. Their poops are thicker than they are for fish but not as much as with pinkies/mice. They pass them through just fine and really like to eat them. One snake needs them to be scented but at that point she is ready to go. I definitely wouldn't do this regularly for fear of maybe constipation? Since, again, I'm a little ehhh about them being "cooked", seems odd. Now that I think about it though, in terms of composition, I guess it's not that different from there being casings on reptilinks. For some variation in their diet (ideally, garters eat primarily fish and amphibians with some rodent supplementation, you do NOT want a fat snake) this is great in my opinion, because of the lack of risk of parasites. It's about the same consistency of chicken livers I guess you could say, which, I know some people also feed their garters...

Perfect for Blue Tongue Skinks!!

I got these for my friend who has a blue tongue skunk and he loved the snails! Gobbled them down. I tried to see if my tree frog would like them but she didn’t lol. But it’s great for lizards and skinks!!

Poe and Blossom loved them!

I bought the can of snails as a treat/enrichment for our non-releasable Opossums at the Nature Center. They both loved them so much! I am definitely going to have to order more. They are a bit expensive so they will be used as occasional treats and training aids only.

Box turtle approved!

I wasn’t sure my picky turtle would try these, but after sniffing them a bunch of times she decided that they might be acceptable and took a bite. She loves these snails now! It’s also very thoughtful that ZooMed includes a tiny spoon to scoop out the snails..
