so I need to ship 5 large (2-inch) thin striped hermit crabs that I sold on eBay and I was wondering if shipping is the same as with fish and snails? I have usps priority mail (1-3 days) and I'm hoping this will be okay? Overnight is very expensive. Can I ship bags with 1/3 full saltwater and the rest air, or would a wet paper towel and a little water be sufficient? Thanks

I have never shipped a hermit that large but I imagine it would be similar to what you have described with some water in the bag and possibly some netting to grip onto. Double or triple bag. We used to put newspaper between the bags for plecos not just to keep them in the dark but to help with the punctures,maybe that would help.
