I have a pet garden snail who is fully grown, but still not very big. Sometimes I need to move my snail around for one reason or another, like for cage cleaning. But I'm afraid to pick snails up, because I'm afraid I might hurt them if I just try to pull them off whatever they're stuck to!
Usually, I try to put something tasty in front of my snail and wait for them to crawl onto it, so I can pick up the food and the snail along with it. But sometimes it backfires, and my snail sits there eating for half an hour without ever climbing onto the food itself. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes quite a while before my snail crawls onto something I can move!
Is there a way to pick up a garden snail without hurting them?
