Turbo Snails are Back

Turbo Snails are Back in Supply
Turbo snails (Turbo sp) are back in stock in good quantity after a long absence. In case you were wondering, we do not import Mexican Turbo Snails from the early summer through early fall. Historically the mortality incurred on the Turbo snail during this period is elevated due to the temperature extremes experienced in the Northern Baja region where they are collected. We wait until the weather cools off considerably before resuming shipments so that we may provide our customers with a specimen in optimal condition. During their absence we do provide alternative algae eating snails collected from other regions of the world.

As with last year, these first few shipments of the season are running on the large side and most of the snails are quite active.
