I have a water monitor and would like to increase the variety in his diet. I am trying to find someplace I can buy shellfish and maybe snails, similar to those selling crickets and rats. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thank you

For the shellfish, if you are anywhere near a coast you can usually find a fish market that has live crayfish, mussels, crabs and such in season. With a valid shellfishing license, you can collect your own. Otherwise, look for Asian markets, there are several here in Seattle that carry live shellfish all year 'round.

Zoo Med sells de-shelled snails in a can called, predictably enough, Can o' Snails. You can find them at many pet shops and online stores.

If you can't figure out my address, you need help.
