Can't you use the eggs as an alternative to Caviar ?

  I'll pop some in the post for yoy to try.  Good idea!!

Mrs Tiggywinkle, are these land snails??

If so, could you post them anywhere for sale, offer people a chance to be put down on a request list. Then as they hatch and are big enough to go to new homes. offer them on a first-come first-served basis from the list.

As long as you supply a good info pack on the care and absolute essentials such as tank, keeping them moist, substrata and food needs, and make it clear that these are musts for correct care, lus how big they get, how long lived, how much they eat, what they need if you go on holiday etc. There are 2 or 3 really good internet sites detailing all of it.

I know some snails sell for pets at around 7 for the snails when still only a couple of inches long.

Excretia, you forgot recipes.
Rare one

Missed out ? Lucky escape is what I'd call it, I'll come visit them at yours Mrs Tiggywinkle, I don't do pets any more,see where it's got you with Jack's multiplications.Much rather keep an eye on Warrior's cacti and succulents.
