snails and tanks without covers

do snails crawl out of tanks when they aren't covered?

All the tanks I have had have some kind of lip or brace around it which prevents them from getting out.

They aren't sneaky enough to climb around that?

nope. mine always stop at the top of the tank. However, Mr Orange (my 1" long stomatella) could usually be found in my overflow chamber.
The rest of the guys just stayed in the tank.

Generally they stop at the upper water level limit. I had hundreds in my local species tank, not one ever got out. They all lined up at the water line like the start of the NYC marathon!

Well, it's kind of like those people who go to the beach to get sun, but only go to the water's edge, get their toes wet, and go no farther. Snails aren't dumb, WATER: Breathe, AIR No Breathe.
