    What kind of snails? Depending on the type, some lfs will take them ( mine only give store credit on mystery snails and assassin snails )
    or if you have feeder fish that eats snails ( Goldfish, etc ) you could feed it to them or give them to people who have fish that will eat eggs/snails.

    So really depends on the type of snails you have to prevent breeding and or removing eggs, etc.

    Can you post a picture? if they are pest snails such as Bladder/pond snails, they may not take them and highly unlikely you will get any $$$ for them. Again, a picture will help to identify.

    We would probably have better luck with a small local petstore rather than a chain.

    I've seen people advertise their excess snails on local classifieds.

    It's probably a bladder snail but can you get a shot from the top of the shell?

    Probably not. Though if someone near you or your LFS has a ravenous pufferfish they may be willing to take them off your hands:)

    Some carnivorous fish will est them if you smush the snails with your thumb but if your LFS wants them they'll want them alive.

    Goldfish will eat anything AFAIK but I'm not sure whether the shell could affect them. What size goldfish do you have?
