Where to Buy One

New York Magazine - - STRATE­GIST -

If you want to take in a snail you find on a stem of arugula, that may be per­fectly above­board. But if you want to or­der one on­line, that is a dif­fer­ent story: It’s of­ten il­le­gal to buy snails from out

of state be­cause many are in­va­sive species. This doesn’t mean snail sites don’t ex­ist: Snailpets.com, which is run by a moth­er­daugh­ter duo, ships them in a ven­ti­lated con­tainer with some let­tuce ($18), and there are le­gions of black-mar­ket snails on sites like eBay and Etsy. But your best bet, if you want to avoid the le­gal is­sues sur­round­ing snail-or­der­ing, is to go look for one un­der a log in the park.
