Just put em in the freezer alive, it's more humane than snail bait and no worse than standing on the buggers. :(
However they may prefer drowning in beer :lol:

Slim might be the only one with a better idea, being a reptile expert.

The only reason i know to do this, is that I have a friend with heaps of reptiles and this is how he keeps a summer stock of snails going. It works perfectly.
It's jus tthe opposite of dropping yabbies/crayfish into boiling water. :shock:
