Last summer, Choco had babies with Lemonade. I've decided to keep them until they grow old. Now, I think that I can't keep them for very long, because they'll grow up and I won't have room for them.
So, I discussed with my mom and my sister, and I thought I could give them for free (well, almost, I would only ask to pay for shipping). I would only ship snails in Canada, when weather gets warm enough.
I wanted to know: is it allowed? Or it would look suspicious? Would I be banned if I do it? I just want the babies to be happy and I know they won't be if I keep them...
Thank you if you answer!
Edit: all of the babies have been given. Plus, I don't ship in winter for temperature reasons. Thank you!

Thanks! They are Cepaea Nemoralis, so shipping them is okay, my sister sold a few and she never had problems. I intend to free quite a few anyway. If nobody in my family or friends want them, I thought I could give them here. Thanks again!
Hi! I think it would be ok, Cepaea nemoralis are an introduced species, but they've been here so long I don't think anyone would care. I'd be interested in seeing some of the snails you have available! I'm looking to expand my collection
1 Flamed Tigersnail ~20 Whitelip snails ~20 Grove snails 1 Golden Apple snail
It is safe to ship locally found snails. Unlike the U.S.A, we don't have laws that prohibit interprovincial shipping. It's only when you're shipping things like giant African land snails, helix snails and other exotics when it becomes illegal.
Wow, my snailies are getting famous! I'll have to discuss with another "receiver" and then I'll be able to answer. By the way, I have only 10 snails available. I can't give them now, because it's too cold, but if you're interested, please send me a p.m. Thank you!
