If they are then I should have no problem shipping them in any way it sounds like I just need to keep them from drying out is that right

When I moved (south to north) cross-country three years ago, I unintentionally moved my MT snails:
I placed my driftwood and gravel in a big rubbermaid container (covered) in the back of my topper-covered pickup. Parked in a hotel parking lot for about a week (house sold sooner than we could move) then drove north (in August). Stayed at my mothers for another 5 days (i think I remember flushing the container with water while there), moved to new house and waited for aquarium to arrive. Put gravel/driftwood into tank, filled with water, and found live snails!
So any of the methods mentioned above should be fine

|mordalphus||newspaper in case the bag leaks and for some insulation. They ship fine like that, but if they sit in a hot mailbox they're toast.|

|familyman03||Why newspaper and how well do they ship like that|
