I was working out in the garden and plucked 6 large snails out of the ground.  I know loaches like snails so is it possible for me to feed them these guys?  Anyone every do this?  Thoughts?

You'd need some huge loaches lol

Only thing I'd worry about is disease which snails can carry as well as parasites but I'm
Not sure if they could transfer over from a land snail to a fish

Land snails and slugs may be a good food for some fish. I can't see any harm in trying them.

I would just be careful and find out if anywhere around you is sprayed with pesticides.
