Yeah. They are know to hybernate of sorts while dried up out of the tank. It's very strange.

No, in that month they have become land based snails. The water will kill them.

When my pond snails escape the tank I find the empty shells on my floor. It's kind of disgusting...

That's the resilient of a pond snail. Nothing seems to kill them, just like cockroaches.

I've oven dried gravel and the dang things still live when water is added. LOL.
